Staff Picks: The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin
It’s Locus’s 2020 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!
Arley Sorg selects The City We Became by N.K. Jemisin. Gary K. Wolfe says: “The basic premise, which was previewed in Jemisin’s 2016 story “The City Born Great”, is this: each great city reaches a point in its history when it literally comes alive and is embodied in an avatar who might otherwise seem an ordinary, undistinguished citizen. When this happens, ancient eldritch forces try to use this moment of instability to invade and gain a foothold in our world.”
You can check out Gary’s review online or in the February 2020 issue of Locus.
