A founding editor of io9.com and the organizer for the monthly Writers With Drinks reading series, Charlie Jane Anders has had much success with her novel All the Birds in the Sky, which has won awards such as the Nebula, Locus, and Crawford. Her latest work, The City in the Middle of the Night, takes place on a planet half consumed by frozen darkness, the other by eternal blazing sunshine. The only habitable place is the sliver of dusk. Here, what is left of humanity now resides within two archaic cities, one rich with anarchy and the other weighed down by strict rule. Surrounded by this civil unrest, young Sophie has become a reluctant revolutionary. When she is presumed dead after being exiled to the cold darkness, Sophie finds a ragtag family that will help her change everything.
