Today is the release date for Among Others, Jo Walton’s newest novel. This book is being published by Tor, and it is currently being featured on their website . The senior editor for Tor Books also wrote an article about the book, talking about why he loves this project. Here is a bit of what he had to say:
Like many novels that are a little hard to describe, “Among Others” is a lot of different things, some of which wouldn’t seem to work together, and yet they do. It’s a coming-of-age story. It’s a classic outsider tale. It’s at least partly autobiographical—yes, an autobiographical fantasy novel. It’s about solving a fantasy problem through science-fictional modes of thought. Most of all, though, it’s an absolutely incandescent depiction, through its first-person protagonist Mori, of what it feels like to be young, smart, a bit odd, and immersed in the business of discovering great science fiction and fantasy—and rewiring one’s consciousness thereby.
