Featured Author Event: Anne Bishop (Denver)
Fantasy fiction fans in Colorado take note: New York Times bestselling author Anne Bishop will be discussing her new Ace novel, WILD COUNTRY, on Thursday night at the Tattered Cover bookstore in Denver. This free event begins at 7:00 p.m. and Bishop will sign copies of her book following her talk and an audience Q&A.
In this powerful and exciting fantasy, set in the world of the New York Times bestselling Others series, humans and the shape-shifting Others will see whether they can live side by side … without destroying one another. There are ghost towns in the world—places where the humans were annihilated in retaliation for the slaughter of the shape-shifting Others.
One of those places is Bennett, a town at the northern end of the Elder Hills—a town surrounded by “the wild country.” Now efforts are being made to resettle Bennett as a community where humans and Others live and work together. A young female police officer has been hired as the deputy to a Wolfgard sheriff. A deadly type of Other wants to run a human-style saloon. And a couple with four foster children—one of whom is a blood prophet—hope to find acceptance.
But as they reopen the stores and the professional offices and start to make lives for themselves, the town of Bennett attracts the attention of other humans looking for profit. And the arrival of the outlaw Blackstone Clan will either unite Others and humans…or bury them all.
Anne Bishop is a winner of the William L. Crawford Memorial Fantasy Award, presented by the International Association for the Fantastic in the Arts, for The Black Jewels Trilogy. She is the author of the Novels of the Others series and The World of the Others series.
