How SF Writers Build Alien Minds: Ann Leckie and Adrian Tchaikovsky in Conversation

By Orbit LIVE!

How does a science fiction author create an alien mind that is truly alien? Join two of the best-known contemporary science fiction authors, Ann Leckie and Adrian Tchaikovsky, for a conversation about the fascinating aliens they've created for their award-winning and bestselling books—and how the humans in those books interact with creatures so, well, alien.

Ann Leckie [she/her] is the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice and other acclaimed science fiction and fantasy novels. Her latest is Translation State, out from Orbit in June.

Adrian Tchaikovsky [he/him] is the Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author of Children of Time and other acclaimed novels, including the Final Architecture series; the conclusion to that series, Lords of Uncreation, came out from Orbit in May.

Moderator Priyanka Krishnan [she/her] is a Senior Editor at Orbit.
