About the Author

Amal El-Mohtar is an award-winning author, editor, and critic. Her short story "Seasons of Glass and Iron" won the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards and was a finalist for the World Fantasy, Sturgeon, Aurora, and Eugie Foster awards. She is the author of The Honey Month, a collection of poetry and prose written to the taste of twenty-eight different kinds of honey, and contributes criticism to NPR Books and The New York Times. Her fiction has most recently appeared on Tor and Uncanny Magazine, and in anthologies such as The Djinn Falls in Love & Other Stories and The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales. She is presently pursuing a PhD at Carleton University and teaches creative writing at the University of Ottawa. She can be found online at @Tithenai.

Max Gladstone is the author of the Hugo-nominated Craft Sequence, which Patrick Rothfuss called "stupefyingly good." The sixth book, Ruin of Angels, was released September 2017. Max's interactive mobile game Choice of the Deathless was nominated for the XYZZY Award, and his critically acclaimed short fiction has appeared on Tor and in Uncanny Magazine, and in anthologies such as XO Orpheus: Fifty New Myths and The Starlit Wood: New Fairy Tales. John Crowley described Max as "a true star of 21st-century fantasy." Max has sung in Carnegie Hall and was once thrown from a horse in Mongolia. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Review

"This Is How You Lose the Time War is rich and strange, a romantic tour through all of time and the multiverse, and you shouldn't miss a moment."--Martha Wells, Hugo Award-winning author of The Murderbot Diaries

"A time travel adventure that has as much humanity, grace, and love as it has temporal shenanigans, rewriting history, and temporal agents fighting to the death. Two days from now, you've already devoured it."--Ryan North, New York Times Bestselling and Eisner Award winning author of How To Invent Everything: A Survival Guide For The Stranded Time Traveler

"A twisting, sapphic time travel fantasy love story that never stops surprising: El-Mohtar and Gladstone have written the ultimate in enemies-to-lovers romance."-- "Booklist, Starred Review"

"An intimate and lyrical tour of time, myth and history, with a captivating conversation between characters--and authors. Read it."--New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

"If Iain M. Banks and Gerard Manley Hopkins had ever been able to collaborate on a science fiction project, well, it wouldn't be half as much fun as this novella. There is all the pleasure of a long series, and all the details of a much larger world, presented in miniature here."--Kelly Link

"Lyrical and vivid and bittersweet. An absolutely lovely read from two talented writers."--Ann Leckie, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice

"Poetry, disguised as genre fiction. I read several sections out loud -- this is prose that wants to be more than read. It wants to be heard and tasted."--Kelly Sue DeConnick, author of Captain Marvel

"Seditious and seductive, lush and lustrous, allusive and elusive, THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE THE TIME WAR is one of those rare stories where one struggles to decide whether to heap more praise upon its clever structure and prose or its brilliant ideas and characters."
--Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings and The Paper Menagerie and Other Stories

"This book has it all: treachery and love, lyricism and gritty action, existential crisis and space-opera scope, not to mention time traveling superagents. Gladstone's and El-Mohtar's debut collaboration is a fireworks display from two very talented storytellers."--Madeline Miller, Winner of the Orange Prize for Fiction

Tenderness, danger, daring, wit -- Time War has them all... In other words, these pages are strewn with myriad delights.--Nisi Shawl --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
