Sci-fi fans, take note! Brookline Booksmith welcomes NYT bestselling author CATHERYNNE M. VALENTE and novelist THEODORA GOSS for a discussion of females in horror/sci-fi literature.
In their latest works, Valente and Goss write from women’s perspectives.
VALENTE’s The Refrigerator Monologues explores the a series of linked stories from the points of view of the wives and girlfriends of superheroes, female heroes, and anyone who’s ever been “refrigerated”: so that a male superhero’s storyline will progress.
GOSS’s The Strange Case of the Alchemist’s Daughter draws characters from classic sci-fi and horror literature with a twist. Based on some of literature’s horror and science fiction classics, this is the story of a remarkable group of women who come together to solve the mystery of a series of gruesome murders—and the bigger mystery of their own origins.
