A New York Times Bestselling Author
A Hugo Award Winning Author
In the first collection of her evocative short fiction, three-time Hugo Award winner N. K. Jemisin equally challenges and delights readers with thought-provoking narratives of destruction, rebirth, and redemption. Spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises. And in the Hugo Award�-nominated short story "The City Born Great," a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis's soul.
