Scott Westerfeld Plays Sci-Fi & Fantasy Themed Would You Rather at BookExpo America

Whether you know him from Uglies, Leviathan, or Afterworlds, you know that any fantasy by Scott Westerfeld means that readers are in for a wild adventure. His latest, Zeroes, introduces a new element though: coauthors. Jealous of the collaboration that occurs between television writers in a writers room, Westerfeld came together with two Australian authors (Margo Lanagan and Deborah Biancotti) to work on a book about kids who develop superpowers. Here, we talk to Westerfeld about the process of working so closely with other authors, before playing a quick round of Sci-Fi & Fantasy Would You Rather.

Kelly Gallucci
Far too busy rereading the Harry Potter series, Kelly finds that her greatest literary sin is that she neglected to read classics like The Shining and The Perks of Being a Wallflower. In between overseeing the editorial content for Bookish, holding interviews with authors like Leigh Bardugo and Victoria Schwab, and creating book recommendations for Kanye West—Kelly’s trying to catch up on the books she missed out on. She just finished The Great Gatsby and might be in love with Fitzg. Kelly received her B.A. in English Writing from Marist College and her M.A. in Screenwriting from National University of Ireland, Galway. She is a Gryffindor.
