Kate Heartfield—finalist for the Aurora, Nebula, and the Locus First Novel Award—hosts an evening with acclaimed authors Derek Kunsken and Annalee Newitz. Join us for a conversatin on learning from imagined futures.
Derek Kunsken is the author of the Quantum Evolution Series— The Quantum Magician and
The Quantum Garden
—which focuses on Belisarius, a Homo Quantus, engineered with impossible insight. But his gift is also a curse—an uncontrollable, even suicidal drive to know, to understand. Genetically flawed, he leaves his people to find a different life, and ends up becoming the galaxy’s greatest con man and thief.
Annalee Newitz, founder of
the science fiction website io9, and winner of a Lambda award for their debut novel
Autonomous, is the author of
The Future of Another Timeline. It is the story of two lives that intertwine as war breaks out across the timeline–a war that threatens to destroy time travel and leave only a small group of elites with the power to shape the past, present, and future. Against the vast and intricate forces of history and humanity, is it possible for a single person’s actions to echo throughout the timeline?
