Her name is Sahira.
And she is our last hope.
She is the time-traveling, shapeshifting hijabi defender of humanity you meet in the second season of Ansible, striving across time and space to protect our descendants from the most unexpected and dangerous threat our species has ever faced.
This portrait of Sahira by artist Lauren K. Cannon will be featured as the cover art for Ansible: A Thousand Faces, an omnibus edition of the Ansible Saga. I am elated to have another cover from Lauren, and I thought you might like an early look!
Stant Litore is a novelist. He writes about gladiators on tyrannosaurback, Old Testament prophets battling the hungry dead, geneticists growing biological starships, time-traveling hijabi bisexual defenders of humanity from the future. Explore his fiction here. And here is one of his toolkits for writers, and here’s another book where he nerds out about ancient languages and biblical (mis)translation. Enjoy!
