About the Author

Nicky Drayden's short fiction has appeared in publications such as Shimmer and Space and Time. She is a systems analyst and resides in Austin, Texas, where being weird is highly encouraged, if not required. Her debut novel, The Prey of Gods, was a best of the year pick by Book Riot, Vulture, and RT Book Reviews.


Drayden's novel trades off humor with dark reality, connecting this sf world to our own questions of cooperation, gender inequality, and, most of all, our relationship to our planet...Escaping Exodus: Symbiosis is, at its core, rooted in a fascinating world that presents intriguing questions to its readers, as well as driven, complex, and often queer characters. -- Booklist

This is a book bursting at the seams with physical and emotional life and all its gloriously messy contradictions. We can, and do, hurt the ones we love, and sometimes we forgive, and sometimes we can't, but our relationships are always changed by our actions, and the past never changes. All we can do is find a way to live with the world we're in as best we're able, and hopefully not cause any more damage than is necessary. You should read it. -- Lightspeed Magazine

"Escaping Exodus is another fine entry from a clearly talented writer. Read if you ever wondered what it would be like if the Millennium Falcon decided to live inside that asteroid worm."
