October 20, 2020 via Crowdcast

The Pre-Columbian Americas offered speculative fiction writer Rebecca Roanhorse ample material to construct a captivating world in Black Sun (Saga Press), the first book in her Black and Sun Trilogy. The highly-praised novel is “a lush tale about the intertwined fates of a man born to be the vessel of a god, a seafaring outcast, and a powerful priest” (Publisher’s Weekly).

Roanhorse discussed world-building with fantasy author Leigh Bardugo whose first adult novel, Ninth House (new in paperback from Flatiron Books), is also a masterfully built story about power, privilege, dark magic, and murder among the Ivy League elite. Daniel José Older moderated the event.
