Avram Davidson is one of the few "genre" authors whose stories are frequently (and favorably) compared to the works of Saki, John Collier, O. Henry, and G. K. Chesterton. He wrote fantasy, science fiction, mysteries, historical fiction, and many stories that would be considered 'magical realism' of the Borges sort -- had they not been written by an already-pigeonholed genre writer.
His myriad awards include two Hugos, an Ellery Queen Award, an Alfred Hitchcock Special Award, an Edgar Award, and three World Fantasy Awards, including a 1986 award for Life Achievement. Avram Davidson died in 1993, at the age of 70.
