Magical realism, science fiction, contemporary fantasy, modern fairy tales - the list goes on. So many of our favorite books take us out of our own world and into one entirely new. Master worldbuilders K. Ancrum (author of The Wicker King and the forthcoming The Weight of the Stars and Anna-Marie McLemore (author of The Weight of Feathers, When the Moon Was Ours, Wild Beauty, and Blanca & Roja) discuss how they create spellbinding settings that draw readers in.

“An eerie and mesmerizing thriller that questions the space where reality and perception overlap, The Wicker King is a spine-tingling read that will have you riveted.” ―Caleb Roerhrig, author of Last Seen Leaving and White Rabbit about The Wicker King by K. Ancrum

"McLemore dances deftly across genres, uniquely weaving glistening strands of culture, myth, dream, mystery, love, and gender identity to create a tale that resonated to my core. It’s that rare kind of book that you want to read slowly, deliciously, savoring every exquisite sentence. I adored this book." ―Laura Resau, Américas Award-winning author of Red Glass and The Queen of Water about When the Moon Was Ours by Anna-Marie McLemore
