17 Imagining Worlds (part 2) Featuring MR Carey and Lauren Beukes
Join Sean Wilson in conversation with MR Carey and Hattie Klotz in conversation with Lauren Buekes. Everything that lives hates us: That’s the reality M.R. Carey is exploring in The Rampart Trilogy. The award-winning author of the Lucifer comics and The Girl With All The Gifts returns with The Book of Koli. Beyond the walls of the small village of Mythen Rood lies an unrecognizable landscape. A place where overgrown forests are filled with choker trees and deadly seeds that will kill you where you stand. Koli has lived in Mythen Rood his entire life. He believes the first rule of survival is that you don't venture too far beyond the walls. He's wrong. Most of the men are dead. Three years after the pandemic known as The Manfall, governments still hold and life continues–but a world run by women isn't always a better place. Children of Men meets The Handmaid's Tale in Afterland, a blend of psychological suspense, American noir, and science fiction from South Africa’s Lauren Beukes.
