Join authors Will McIntosh (Faller), Sofia Samatar (The Winged Histories), and Steve White (Imperative) as they discuss world-building, plot structuring, and character development in contemporary and traditional science fiction and fantasy.

Why should you attend?

Faller is mind-bending, futuristic science fiction that contains elements of mystery, intrigue, romance, world war, biological warfare and high-tech science, along with likable characters who often make decisions based on gut feelings rather than logic.”―Shelf Awareness

“All of [The Winged Histories] is harrowing—and written in such heart-stoppingly beautiful language there’s a good chance readers will ignore the plot and spend a few hours just chewing on the words, slowly, to draw out the flavor. Then they’ll need to read it again. Fortunately, this is a short book; also fortunately, there’s a lot of novel packed into relatively few pages. A highly recommended indulgence.”—N. K. Jemisin, New York Times Book Review

“White offers fast action and historically informed world-building.”―Publishers Weekly
