Book Launch: Victor LaValle presents A People’s Future of the United States
In conversation with Victory Matsui
A People’s Future of the United States brings together a glittering landscape of twenty-five speculative stories that challenge oppression and envision new futures for America—from N. K. Jemisin, Charles Yu, Jamie Ford, G. Willow Wilson, Charlie Jane Anders, Hugh Howey, and more. Edited by beloved literary genre fiction explorer Victor LaValle (Big Machine, The Devil in Silver, The Changeling) and John Joseph Adams (series editor of Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy), this spectacular collection blends the dark and the light, the dystopian and the utopian, exploring new forms of freedom, love and justice. These tales are vivid with struggle and hardship—whether it’s the othered and the terrorized, or dragon-riders and covert commandos—but these characters don’t flee, they fight. Editor Victor LaValle will read from and discuss the collection with Victory Matsui, editor of One World, an imprint of Penguin Random House.
