Nina Horvath of Vienna will be in the next Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund race. TAFF co-administrator Jim Mowatt made the announcement on Facebook.
She is the second person to join the field, Wolf von Witting having declared in September.
Horvath is a frequent contributor to Europa SF, the English-language European sf news site. Her mother tongue is German. She has over two dozen published short stories, and Horvath’s“Die Duftorgel” won the 2012 Deutscher Phantastik Preis for the best fantastic short story.
She also has edited several short story collections: Metamorphosen – Auf den Spuren H.P. Lovecrafts, Darwins Schildkröte, and Die Schattenuhr which won the 2012 Vincent Preis for the best horror anthology.
(Isn’t “Vincent Preis” the perfect name for a horror genre award? Jack Harness’ name for fannish bilingual puns was “Berlitzkrieg.”)
