Dorman published approximately two dozen science fiction stories between 1961 and 1980, gathering three of these as a young adult novel, Planet Patrol, in 1978; she also published fiction in The Saturday Evening Post, Redbook, and other nonspecialist magazines. Dorman was particularly associated with science fiction's "New Wave" of edgy, experimental writing and indeed, her short story "Go, Go, Go, Said the Bird" was featured in Harlan Ellison's groundbreaking Dangerous Visions anthology (1967). Her experimental novel Onyx was rejected by publishers in 1971, but her collected Poems appeared in 1970, followed by Palace of Earth (1984), Constellations of the Inner Eye (1991), Carrying What You Love (1996), and other volumes of poetry. She moved to Taos, New Mexico in 1986, publishing once again under her maiden name, and died there at eighty. Dorman's recognition from the science fiction community includes a 1978 Science Fiction Poetry Association Rhysling Award for "The Corruption of Metals," and a 1995 James Tiptree, Jr. retroactive award for "When I Was Miss Dow" (1963, reprinted in Galaxy 1966).
