(1949 --)

Malcolm John Edwards is a British SF editor, fan and critic. He received his degree from the University of Cambridge (where he was a member of the Cambridge University SF Society), and currently lives in London with his wife. They have three children.

He was very active in fandom in the 60s and 70s, his activity declining as his professional career advanced. Early in his fannish life, he was the subject of fannish confusion, since just before he became active, Peter Weston had used "Malcolm Edwards" as a pseudonym for some fan writing.

He was one of the organizers of the successful Britain in '79 Worldcon bid. He ran for GUFF in 1981. He chaired Conspiracy '87 until about 9 months before the convention when he stepped aside. He was a member of the British Science Fiction Association.

He was one of the founders of Interzone. He served as SF editor for Victor Gollancz, which led to him launching the SF Masterworks series at Orion in 1999.

Edwards has edited a number of publications including and the SF anthology Constellations (Gollancz, 1980), and he was the editor of the Science Fiction Foundation journal Foundation from 1978 to 1980.
