In other worlds—a dystopian future, the empire of Feng Lu, a colonized Earth—our heroes must confront darkness and danger as they fight against evil empires and their own destinies. In her debut novel Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, Julie C. Dao reimagines fairy tale and folklore in the story of a peasant girl’s quest to become Empress, and the dark choices she must make along that path. Fonda Lee’s futuristic Exo is set on an Earth colonized by a powerful alien race, where Donovan finds himself abducted by a human revolutionary group. And in the dystopia of Emily Suvada’s This Mortal Coil, Cat uses her gene-hacking skills to try to save humanity from an apocalyptic plague. Moderated by Amber Keyser (Pointe Claw).
