From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Cherry Wilder (September 3, 1930 - March 14, 2002) was the pseudonym of science fiction writer Cherry Barbara Grimm.

Wilder was born in Auckland, New Zealand and spent a lot of her time in Australia and Germany. She chose the pseudonym when she began to write science fiction in 1974. She published over fifty short stories and novels. She died in Wellington after a long battle with cancer.

Bibliography

There are several incomplete bibliographies on Internet (see External Links). Wilder published short fiction in various periodicals on three continents over a period of 27 years, so it is understandably difficult to keep track of all of her writings.
