Jack Cady

Jack Cady (1932-2004) was an American author. He is most known as an award winning fantasist and horror writer. In his career he won the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award, and the Bram Stoker Award. A master of the short story, Cady is perhaps best known for the Nebula-winning tale The Night We Buried Road Dog (1993). His work at shorter lengths also won him a place in the Best American Short Stories anthologies of 1971 and 1972. Cady was also a major believer in the value of history, not only towards understanding politics, but also writing itself. One of his books was The American Writer: Shaping a Nation’s Mind, a survey of American literature.
