Fearful Symmetry

by Ann Wilson

The setting for the story is sci-fi (multi-planet empires, interstellar war, etc) but the story itself revolves around interpersonal connection, detachment, and the demands people place on themselves: it is not an adventure story. It carries some of the early-twentieth-century shades of sci-fi as a vehicle to examine the human condition -- rather than much of sci-fi today -- and on that level this story works and is enjoyable, much the say way books such as Alien Dark are.

Author of the Day

A. W. Exley
When A.W. Exley isn't deciphering hieroglyphs or riding her horse sidesaddle, she is thinking up plots for her next best-seller. Nefertiti's Heart is a beautiful mixture of all Exley's passions in life, set in a Steampunk society, featuring a very Egyptian theme. As our Author of the Day, she chats with us about her fascination with Egypt, why she picked an alternate universe for Nefertiti and how she shaped the book.
