Imagined Worlds with Kate Heartfield and S. A. Chakraborty Sometimes the stories we need most require a whole new world—or at least a bold new perspective—to come to life. Join us for a taste of two remarkable tales and a conversation on the power of the imagination and how to channel unbridled creativity into captivating prose. The Alice Payne novellas by former newspaper editor and columnist Kate Heartfield are stories of a time-traveling thief turned reluctant hero: It’s 1788 and Alice Payne is the notorious highway robber, the Holy Ghost. Aided by her trusty automaton, Laverna, the Holy Ghost is feared by all who own a heavy purse. It’s 1889 and Major Prudence Zuniga is once again attempting to change history?to save history?but seventy attempts later she’s still no closer to her goal. But in 2020 the Farmers and the Guides are locked in battle; time is their battleground, and the world is their prize. Only something new can change the course of the war. Or someone new. With The Kingdom of Copper , S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brass, conjuring a world where djinn summon flames with the snap of a finger and waters run deep with old magic; where blood can be as dangerous as any spell, and a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom. Nominated for the World Fantasy Award, the Locus Award and British Fantasy Award, City of Brass was named one of the best books of the year by The Library Journal, Vulture, The Verge and SYFYWire.
