Emily Pohl-Weary

Emily a.k.a. Supergirl at age five, getting ready for children's Caribana.Emily Pohl-Weary edited Girls Who Bite Back. Her first novel, A Girl like Sugar, was published in November, 2004, by McGilligan Books. It's a ghost love story about a girl who's haunted by her dead rockstar boyfriend. The Globe and Mail called it "wonderfully explicit" and "quietly redemptive."

In 2002, she co-authored the Hugo Award-winning book Better to Have Loved: The Life of Judith Merril (Between the Lines). Merril, Pohl-Weary’s grandmother, was also known as the “little mother of science fiction” because she wrote gender-bending science fiction in the 1950s. Better to Have Loved has been praised in The Globe and Mail, Asimov’s Science Fiction, The San Francisco Bay Guardian and The Village Voice. Visit for more info.

Pohl-Weary has been editing Kiss Machine magazine, a conga line of culture, since 2000. She's currently editing a slim little poetry collection, Iron-On Constellations, for publication in the fall of 2005, working on a four-issue girl pirate comic (with artist Willow Dawson), and writing a young adult mystery novel (to be published in the fall of 2006, by Annick Press).
