About the Author

Edgar Award finalist Denise Hamilton is the author of seven crime novels and the editor of the best-selling anthology Los Angeles Noir (which includes the Edgar Award-winning short story "The Golden Gopher" by Susan Straight) and Los Angeles Noir 2: The Classics. She is a former Los Angeles Times journalist, a Fulbright Scholar, a noir and sci-fi/fantasy geek, and a proud LA native who refuses to speak only in English.

[Speculative Los Angeles] is a swath of tales that are both wildly imaginative and emotionally grounded, speculations that not only imagine our possible futures but illuminate the collective anxieties of our unsettled and unsettling present.-- "Los Angeles Times"
Speculative Los Angeles is a thrill ride of grand ideas and warnings. Take a place that already defines the future of culture, add fourteen unbound minds, and you get a collection that wows the imagination like no other.--Michael Connelly, author of the best-selling Harry Bosch series
The problem of buying books for others can be solved by offering the equivalent of the literary box of chocolates: the anthology . . . For Californians, or people who just like the West Coast, there's Speculative Los Angeles, edited by Denise Hamilton.-- "Washington Post, recommended by Silvia Moreno-Garcia"
Accessible, challenging, and fun by turns, Speculative Los Angeles possesses everything a fan could want.-- "New York Journal of Books"
14 outstanding stories of weird and uncanny happenings in the City of Angels . . . Each story presents a fresh take on the magic and strangeness of LA past, present, and future, and the characters are representative of the diverse region, caught in situations ranging from surreal to chilling. Readers should snap this up.-- "Publishers Weekly, Starred Review, Pick of the Week"
