Biography

Terry Carr was born in Grants Pass, Oregon. He was an enthusiastic publisher of science fiction fanzines, which later helped open his way into the professional publishing world. (He was one of the two fans responsible for the famous hoax fan 'Carl Brandon' after whom the Carl Brandon Society takes its name.) Though he published some fiction in the early 1960s, Carr concentrated on editing. He first worked at Ace Books, establishing the Ace Science Fiction Specials series which published, among other things, The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin and Rite of Passage by Alexei Panshin

After conflicts with Ace head Donald A. Wollheim, he worked freelance. He edited an original story anthology series called Universe, and a popular series of Best of the Year anthologies that ran from 1972 until his death in 1987. He also edited numerous one-off anthologies over the same time span

His papers and his large collection of fanzines have become part of the Eaton Collection of Science Fiction at the University of California, Riverside

Terry Carr's widow, Carol Carr, is also a published science fiction writer known for her stories "Some Are Born Cats" (1973, with Terry Carr) and "You Think You've Got Troubles" (1969).
