Upcoming Event
Sunday, April 11, 2021 - 3:00pm

Join these speculative fiction writers, Courttia Newland & Rivers Solomon, as they discuss their new books with Denise Hamilton on P&P Live!

Courttia Newland is the author of seven books including A River Called Time, The Gospel According to Cane, and his much-lauded debut, The Scholar. In 2016 he was awarded the Roland Rees Bursary for playwriting. As a screenwriter, he has written two episodes of the Steve McQueen BBC series Small Axe. Cosmogramma is his forthcoming book.

Rivers Solomon writes about life in the margins, where they are much at home. In addition to appearing on the Stonewall Honor List and winning a Firecracker Award, Solomon's debut novel An Unkindness of Ghosts was a finalist for a Lambda, a Hurston/Wright, an Otherwise (formerly Tiptree) and a Locus award. Solomon's second book, The Deep, based on the Hugo-nominated song by Daveed Diggs-fronted hip-hop group clipping, was the winner of the 2020 Lambda Award and shortlisted for a Nebula, Locus, Hugo, Ignyte, Brooklyn Library Literary, British Fantasy, and World Fantasy award. Their next novel, Sorrowland, is out in May 2021. A refugee of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, Solomon was born on Turtle Island but currently resides on an isle in an archipelago off the western coast of the Eurasian continent.

Denise Hamilton is the author of seven crime novels and the editor of Speculative Los Angeles (Feb 2021). She edited the best-selling Los Angeles Noir Anthology (which includes an Edgar award winning story) and Los Angeles Noir 2: The Classics. Hamilton is a former L.A. Times journalist, Fulbright scholar and Edgar Award finalist. Her next novel is a work of speculative fiction set in Los Angeles.
