About the Author
Micaiah Johnson is the Compton Crook Award-winning author of The Space Between Worlds. Her debut novel was an Editors' Choice of The New York Times and named one of best books of 2020 and one of the best science-fiction books of the last decade by NPR. She was raised in California's Mojave Desert, surrounded by trees named Joshua and women who told stories. She received a bachelor of arts in creative writing from the University of California, Riverside, and a master of fine arts in fiction from Rutgers University-Camden. She now studies American literature at Vanderbilt University, where she focuses on critical race theory and automatons.
"A bold, beautiful, gut-punch of a story, at turns ferocious and poetic--and sometimes both at once."--Veronica Roth, New York Times bestselling author of Chosen Ones

"Those Beyond the Wall is a standout novel with painful clarity of voice; [it is] savage, yet humane. Micaiah Johnson has more than delivered on the promise of her exceptional first novel with a follow-up that is even more tightly plotted and more vividly characterized."--Elizabeth Bear, Hugo Award-winning author of Ancestral Night

"[Those Beyond the Wall] reads like Mad Max: Fury Road was written by Philip K. Dick and N. K. Jemisin."--CrimeReads

"Gritty like desert sand, shiny like a too-hot sun on chrome, armored in its finest battle leathers, but beneath all that, Those Beyond the Wall is an exploration of community and found family and what happens when the real enemy is a society that refuses to recognize the humanity of others. This book is a fierce love letter to everyone who has ever found themselves beyond the wall. Wonderful stuff, but I wouldn't expect any less from Micaiah Johnson."--Sarah Pinsker, Nebula and Hugo Award-winning author of Lost Places and A Song for a New Day

"[Those Beyond the Wall] packs an emotional punch, as brutality lies next to the thin edge of caring, wrapped up in friendship and rage, and love will not stop hearts from shattering."--Library Journal, starred review

"Johnson's riveting dystopian story . . . will appeal to fans of classic SF that portrays parallels to current social issues." --Booklist, starred review
