Details



The best fiction has always been a little...dangerous. For centuries, authors have used the veil of fiction to cast a critical eye toward the larger society around them: think of Emile Zola, Victor Hugo, Issac Asimov, Margaret Atwood, Aldous Huxley, J.R.R. Tolkien, H.G. Wells, Mary Shelley, and beyond. And now, for the first time, some of the biggest names in contemporary fiction discuss the endless possibilities of the world of fiction with a specific focus on anarchist politics.

In a series of interviews with SteamPunk Magazine founder Margaret Killjoy, Ursula K. Le Guin, Alan Moore, Lewis Shiner, Starhawk, Derrick Jensen, Cristy C. Road, Michael Moorcock, and a variety of other up-and-coming young writers reflect on the ways in which their personal politics have shaped their work. Plus, a fantastic introduction by best-selling sci-fi author Kim Stanley Robinson!
