In conversation in Brooklyn at our 2016 PubCon, novelists Malka Older (the author of Infomocracy: A Novel) and Jennifer Marie Brissett (Elysium) speak with Vintage editor Tim O’Connell about writing speculative fiction and everything that the genre entails, from YA to fantasy and science fiction. They share their experiences in the publishing industry, where they get their inspiration from, and what it’s like being a writer of color who loves science fiction.
