Award-winning author Dr. Karen Lord is an internationally published novelist and a physics teacher, diplomat, part-time soldier, and research consultant, BSc, MSc, MPhil, PhD. She is the author of The Best of All Possible Worlds, its sequel The Galaxy Game, and Redemption in Indigo. The Best of All Possible Worlds won the Frank Collymore Literary Award, RT Reviewers’ Choice Award for Best Science Fiction Novel, and Locus Awards Best Science Fiction Novel. Steeped in Caribbean storytelling, Karen’s latest standalone fantasy novel, Unraveling, is an otherworldly exploration of spirits, myth, and memory. Forensic therapist Dr. Miranda Ecouvo just helped to put away a dangerous serial killer. But after a near-death experience, she is thrown out of time and into a world of spirits and labyrinths. Here, along with her new-found companions of Chance and Trickster, she finds that the real mastermind of the murders is still out there, using myth to obtain immortality. Miranda and the brothers must traverse supernatural mazes and follow her threads of memory to find the true man or monster behind these heinous crimes. “In her depiction of plurality, diversification, and gender, Lord is on par with Ursula K Le Guin.”(The Guardian)
