Margaret Killjoy @ The Big Idea Cooperative Bookstore (In-Person Event)
November 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
On Friday, November 18th at 6:30pm, join author Margaret Killjoy for an in-person event at The Big Idea Cooperative Bookstore to celebrate the release of her short story collection We Won’t Be Here Tomorrow: And Other Stories. RSVP not required.
Spaceships, man-eating mermaids, swords, demons, ghouls, thieves, hitchhikers, and life in the margins.
Margaret Killjoy’s stories have appeared for years in science fiction and fantasy magazines both major and indie. Here, we have collected the best previously published work along with brand new material. Ranging in theme and tone, these imaginative tales bring the reader on a wild and moving ride. They’ll encounter a hacker who programs drones to troll CEOs into quitting; a group of LARPers who decide to live as orcs in the burned forests of Oregon; queer, teen love in a death cult; the terraforming of a climate-changed Earth; polyamorous love on an anarchist tea farm during the apocalypse; and much more. Killjoy writes fearless, mind-expanding fiction.
Margaret Killjoy is a transfeminine author born and raised in Maryland who was spent her adult life traveling with no fixed home. A 2015 graduate of Clarion West, Margaret’s short fiction has been published by Tor.com, Strange Horizons, Vice’s Terraform, and Fireside Fiction, amongst others. She is the author of A Country of Ghosts, The Lamb Will Slaughter the Lion, and The Barrow Will Send What it May. She is also the host of the podcast Live Like the World is Dying and Cool People Who Did Cool Stuff on iHeartRadio.
