About the Author
E.G. Condé is an anthropologist of technology and an emerging speculative fiction writer of the Puerto Rican diaspora.
Reviews

"Condé's brutal, mystical, and deeply felt speculative debut lifts up a vision of Indigenous resistance and renewal in the face of climate change and colonizers. The author's depiction of Taíno culture is profound, his evocative images of a land in ruin are visceral, and the grief and sheer determination expressed through his characters is often so vivid as to be overwhelming. The result is a beautiful blend of futurism and magical realism that delivers a hopeful message of human resilience." - Publishers Weekly starred review

"Indigenous culture is at war with imperialism in E. G. Condé's haunting novel Sordidez Evocative and descriptive, the language captures the lushness of Puerto Rico and the devastation of the desiccated Yucatán peninsula. It is dreamy and vengeful, a character unto itself. It is also multilingual, highlighting words and phrases from Arawak and Mayan languages At its heart, Sordidez is a clarion call to recognize that the political and biological ecosystems of the world are intertwined." - Foreword Reviews
