G. Willow Wilson’s debut novel Alif the Unseen was an NPR and Washington Post Best Book of the Year and won the 2013 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel. Her 2010 memoir, The Butterfly Mosque, was a New York Times Notable Book. In 2015, she won the Graphic Literature Innovator prize at the PEN America Literary Awards. Mixing history, magic realism and religion, Wilson’s new novel, The Bird King (Grove Press), set in the royal court of Granada, the last emirate of Muslim Spain, asks what love is and the price of freedom. G. Willow Wilson is also author of the New York Times bestselling comic book series Ms. Marvel, winner of the 2015 Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story. At San Diego Comic Con, in 2018, it was announced that Wilson would take over writing duties on the ongoing Wonder Woman comic book series. Wilson and Eisner winning artist Christian Ward (Black Bolt) team up for Invisible Kingdom (Berger Books) an epic new sci-fi monthly saga dealing with religion, big corporations and the lives of those trapped in their nets.
