New Worlds, Year Six

More Essays on the Art of Worldbuilding

Enter a land of infinite possibility . . .

In this, the sixth volume of the NEW WORLDS series of worldbuilding guides for science fiction and fantasy writers, award-winning author Marie Brennan takes a deep dive into topics as weighty as slavery, as illicit as crime, and as fun as the inner workings of a magic system. With essays ranging from siege warfare to artistic patronage to food prohibitions, there is something here for every story!

This volume collects essays from the sixth year of the New Worlds Patreon.
