Vintage Books, 6613 E. Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver, invites local sci-fi fans to attend a literary sci-fi event at 2 p.m. Oct. 6. The event is free and all ages are welcome.
Authors Fonda Lee, Curtis Chen and Mike Chen will lead an hour-long discussion, answering questions and signing their books.
Lee is an author of science fiction and fantasy novels for adults and teens. Her fantasy trilogy, the Green Bone Saga, begins with “Jade City,” which won the 2018 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel and was a finalist for the Nebula and Locus Awards. The sequel, “Jade War,” is now available. Her young adult science fiction novels have garnered accolades including being named Junior Library Guild Selections and Andre Norton Award finalists.
Once a Silicon Valley software engineer, Curtis C. Chen now writes fiction and runs puzzle games. His debut novel, “Waypoint Kangaroo” (also a 2017 Locus Awards Finalist and an Endeavour Award Finalist) is a science fiction thriller about a superpowered spy facing his toughest mission yet: vacation. The sequel, “Kangaroo Too,” sends our hero to the Moon.
Mike Chen is a lifelong writer, from crafting fan fiction as a child to somehow getting paid for words as an adult. He has contributed to major geek culture websites (The Mary Sue, The Portalist), covered the NHL for mainstream media outlets, and ghostwritten corporate articles appearing in Forbes, Buzzfeed, Enterpreneur, and more.
