Multi-time novelist Fonda Lee’s work has won the World Fantasy and Aurora Awards, and been nominated for the Nebula, Andre Norton, and Locus Awards. Her series “The Green Bone Saga” continues in summer 2019 with “Jade War.” Follow her on Curious Fictions to read bonus content from her books and occasional short fiction.
