Tor Books is very excited to announce The Geek Feminist Revolution by double Hugo Award-winning essayist and author Kameron Hurley.
The book collects dozens of Hurley’s essays on feminism, geek culture, and her experiences and insights as a genre writer, including “We Have Always Fought,” which won the 2013 Hugo for Best Related Work. The Geek Feminist Revolution will also feature several entirely new essays written specifically for this volume.
“I’m incredibly pleased to be working with Marco Palmieri and Tor Books on The Geek Feminist Revolution,” said Hurley, author of the Worldbreaker epic fantasy series. “This was an exciting book to pitch and is proving to be a lot of fun to put together. Fans have been asking for a traditional compilation of my online essays, and I think this selection of greatest hits and original work is going to make a lot of folks very happy.”
“I’ve been doing a Kermit Flail ever since learning I’d get to work with Kameron,” said Tor Senior Editor Marco Palmieri, “and frankly, I’m exhausted. But I can’t help myself. Kameron’s is an important voice in the ongoing conversation about fandom, inclusion, and the evolution of genre, and I’m proud to amplify that voice as editor of this book.”
Fans can catch up with Hurley at BEA and BookCon, where she’ll be a featured guest. She’ll be a panelist at the “State of Blogging and Books” keynote at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, May 27, and will be taking part in the “We Need Diverse Books” panel at BookCon at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, followed by a signing at 12:30 p.m.
The Geek Feminist Revolution will be published in 2016.
