Indra Das



Indrapramit Das (aka Indra Das) is a writer and artist from Kolkata, India. His fiction has appeared or is forthcoming in several publications including Clarkesworld, Asimovs, Strange Horizons, and Tor.com, and has also been widely anthologized. He is an Octavia E. Butler scholar and a grateful graduate of Clarion West 2012. He completed his M.F.A. at the University of British Columbia (class of 11) in Vancouver, where he wore many hats, including dog hotel night shift attendant, TV background performer, minor film critic, occasional illustrator, environmental news writer, pretend-patient for med school students, and video game tester. He never wore any actual hats, except a toque during winter. He divides his time between India and Canada, immigration-willing.

Indras debut novel The Devourers was published by Penguin Books India in April 2015 and forthcoming in North America in July 2016 from Ballantine Del Rey (Penguin Random House).

The City of Lost Fortunes (2018)
(Crescent City , book 1)
Bryan Camp
"Bryan Camp's debut novel The City of Lost Fortunes is like a blessed stay in a city both distinctly familiar and wonderfully strange, with an old friend who knows just the right spots to take you to-not too touristy, and imbued with the weight of history and myth, populated by local characters you'll never forget. You'll leave sated with the sights and sounds of a New Orleans that is not quite the real city, but breathes like the real thing, a beautiful mimicry in prose that becomes its own version of reality in a way only a good story-or magic-can. You won't regret the visit."
