There are so many important questions about our Chaos and Cosmos campaign but the first one we have to ask our authors is…are you team CHAOS or COSMOS?!
One thing is clear: Whether they write about space, wizards, hackers, or immortals, Tor authors are pretty chaotic.
Check out the incredibly important and serious answer to the question below.
Chaos or Cosmos?
Kate Elliott, author of Unconquerable Sun
Mary Robinette Kowal, author of The Relentless Moon
Tough call… given my Lady Astronaut books, I’m obviously team Cosmos, but anyone who knows me also knows that I’m a Chaos muppet. (https://slate.com/human-interest/2012/06/chaos-theory.html)
S. A. Hunt, author of I Come With Knives
Cosmos. My life—our lives, all of us, really—have enough chaos, and I’d rather explore the cosmos. We seek out stories because we need to find order in the chaos . . . it’s why, almost always, the good guys win. Because the good guys don’t often win in real life, and to survive, we need to see the win when we can to know it’s still possible. Stories give us hope.
