Nalo Hopkinson has been busily (and wonderfully) “subverting the genre” since her first novel, Brown Girl in the Ring, won a Locus Award for SF and Fantasy in 1999. Since then she has acquired a prestigious World Fantasy Award, a legion of adventurous and aware fans, a reputation for intellect seasoned with humor, and a place of honor in the short list of SF writers who are tearing down the walls of category and transporting readers to previously unimagined planets and realms.
Never one to hold her tongue, Hopkinson takes on sexism and racism in publishing (“Report from Planet Midnight”) in a historic and controversial presentation to her colleagues and fans.
“Message in a Bottle,” a radical new twist on the time travel tale that demolishes the sentimental myth of childhood innocence; and “Shift,” a tempestuous erotic adventure in which Caliban gets the girl. Or does he?
And Featuring: our Outspoken Interview, an intimate one-on-one that delivers a wealth of insight, outrage, irreverence, and top-secret Caribbean spells.
“A genuine vitality and generosity…one of the more important and original voices in SF.” —Publishers Weekly
“Out-of-the-ordinary science fiction.“ —Kirkus Reviews
