Brenda Cooper got her start collaborating with Larry Niven. They co-wrote eight short stories between 2001 – 2007, and one novel, Building Harlequin’s Moon, in 2005. She branched out and began writing short fiction of her own in 2003; her first solo novel was The Silver Ship and the Sea, which won the 2008 Endeavour Award, and kicked off The Silver Ship trilogy. She followed up with the Ruby’s Song duology (The Creative Fire, The Diamond Deep) and The Glittering Edge (Edge of Dark, Spear of Light).
Her latest is the start of a brand new series, Project Earth, set in a near-future Earth where “rewilding crews” work to remove all traces of civilization from vast tracks of terrain, returning the planet to its natural state. Gray Scott calls it “A fantastic voyage into a beautifully intricate solarpunk future,” and Karl Schroeder says it’s “A vision of future America that’s by turns exhilarating and terrifying… one of the best near-future adventures in years.” It’s available now in paperback.
