Hi Ruth! So glad you're enjoying the book!

In brief, Max wrote all of Red and I wrote all of Blue.

At medium length, we described the process in depth here: http://clarkesworldmagazine.com/el-mo...

At longest length, we described the process here: https://vector-bsfa.com/2020/03/11/th...

& this is super short notice, but Max and I are going to be in conversation this evening (8PM EST) about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DpG0L...

Thanks so much for reading!

Best,

This was extremely silly and very softcore porny but I found it kind of hot and then at some point it actually graduated from entertaining to endearing, to the point where I'd actually quite like to read the next volume. I enjoyed watching something ...more

Well! The book's been optioned for television and Max and I are drafting a pilot of the first episode, so -- hopefully, though in a different medium!

I've been thinking about this novella for months since I read it last. It just kept sticking to the roof of my mouth and I loved the flavor sooo much. :)

“Books are letters in bottles, cast into the waves of time, from one person trying to save the world to another.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

“I want to be a body for you. I want to chase you, find you, I want to be eluded and teased and adored; I want to be defeated and victorious—I want you to cut me, sharpen me. I want to drink tea beside you in ten years or a thousand. Flowers grow far away on a planet they’ll call Cephalus, and these flowers bloom once a century, when the living star and its black-hole binary enter conjunction.I want to fix you a bouquet of them, gathered across eight hundred thousand years, so you can draw our whole engagement in a single breath, all the ages we’ve shaped together.”
Amal El-Mohtar, This Is How You Lose the Time War

“I love you. I love you. I love you. I'll write it in waves. In skies. In my heart. You'll never see, but you will know. I'll be all the poets, I'll kill them all and take each one's place in turn, and every time love's written in all the strands it will be to you.”
