Don’t miss Karen Osborne in conversation with Arkady Martine to present and discuss Karen Osborne’s unforgettable science fiction debut, Architects of Memory. In a hyper-capitalist apocalyptic future, an alien weapon holds the key to redemption--or annihilation. Terminally ill salvage pilot Ash Jackson lost everything in the war with the alien Vai, but she'll be damned if she loses her future. Her plan: to buy, beg, or lie her way out of corporate indenture and find a cure. When her crew salvages a genocidal weapon from a ravaged starship above a dead colony, Ash uncovers a conspiracy of corporate intrigue and betrayal that threatens to turn her into a living weapon. Fans of space opera will enjoy this new story and will look forward to more from Osborne, who has a bright future ahead of her in long-form fiction. Osborne will discuss the book in a conversation with Hugo-award winning author Arkady Martine, as well as take questions from participants, via this online Zoom event.
