Let’s hope that sci-fi and fantasy novelist Charlie Jane Anders has plenty of shelf space at home, because otherwise she’s got a storage unit somewhere jammed with awards. The San Francisco writer, podcaster and literary troublemaker has already won a Hugo, a Nebula, a Crawford, a Sturgeon, a Locus and a Lambda Literary Award for outstanding LGBTQ literature. Her latest novel, The City in the Middle of the Night, is prompting reviewers to dust off their Ursula K. Le Guin comparisons. It’s about a band of humans clinging to life in a thin strip of habitable land between two dangerous extremes. Gee, wonder where she got that idea.
