Talk

A magnificent work of vivid imagination and universe-spanning action, Empress of Forever is Max Gladstone's feminist Guardians of the Galaxy crossed with Star Wars and spiced with the sensibility and spirit of Iain M. Banks and William Gibson.

Gladstone and Arkady Martine will discuss this fantastical space opera and the issue of ethics and rulership in sci-fi.

Max’s game CHOICE OF THE DEATHLESS was nominated for a XYZZY Award, and FULL FATHOM FIVE was nominated for the Lambda Award. His short fiction has appeared on Tor.com and in Uncanny Magazine.  His most recent project is the globetrotting urban fantasy serial BOOKBURNERS, available in ebook and audio from Serial Box, and in print from Saga Press.
