BALTIMORE, MD -- The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America has announced that Jack L. Chalker, the award-winning author of more than 60 Science Fiction novels and anthologies, died at Bon Secours hospital in Baltimore, Feb. 11. Chalker had been hospitalized since Dec. 25 for congestive heart failure and suffered from lung and kidney distress while in the hospital. He was 61.

Chalker is best known for his epic "Well of Souls" and "Dancing Gods" series of novels and frequent columns for magazines including Fantasy Review and Pulphouse.

Chalker is survived by his wife, Eva C. Whitley, and his two sons, David Whitley Chalker and Steven Lloyd Chalker, both of Baltimore.

Chalker's writing earned him the Dedalus Award, the Gold Medal of the West Coast Review of Books, the Skylark Award and the Hamilton-Brackett Memorial Award. He was nominated for the Hugo Award four times.

He also founded a small publishing company, The Mirage Press, and is the co-author of the widely read reference book The Science-Fantasy Publishers: A Critical and Bibliographic History.
