After leaving molecular biology, Derek Künsken (he/him) worked with street kids in Central America before finding himself in the Canadian foreign service as a diplomat. He now writes science fiction in Gatineau, Québec. His short fiction has appeared in major U.S. magazines such as Analog, Clarkesworld, and Asimov’s, as well as several “year’s best” anthologies. His fiction has been nominated for the Locus and Chinese Nebula Awards, and has won the Aurora and the Asimov’s Award. His work has been translated into Russian, Mandarin, Japanese, Czech, Polish, and French. He is finishing the four-book Quantum Evolution series and the Venus Ascendant duology. Critic Rich Horton describes Derek “as one of the best pure ‘hard science’ writers of the current generation.”

He will talk about his book series The Quantum Evolution with host Myriam Bowles-Carrier.
