Author Kass Morgan says there’s been a recent “explosion” of female creators in the science fiction world.
“There weren’t a lot of women sci-fi creators when I was growing up,” said Morgan, who wrote the young adult sci-fi book, “The 100,” that has since been adapted into a popular show on The CW. “But over the past decade or so there has been sort of an explosion. So it’s been so great to inspire maybe the next generation of nerdy creators,” she said.
Morgan told Bold Life that in her newest novel, “Light Years,” she was interested in exploring a “passionately ambitious” female protagonist.
She also discussed the appeal of the sci-fi genre and said, “Sci-fi is more hopeful than dystopian. Dystopian literature imagines the end of the world, and sci-fi imagines rebuilding. So I think people like thinking about these alternative realities, and how the future might be better.”
