Writing 2: Ann Leckie on SciFi Stardom and Why the Hero of Her New Novel “Provenance” is Just Like Us

SciFi star Ann Leckie is the bestselling author next door. A St. Louis native who still lives and writes in her hometown, Leckie shot to SciFi stardom with her record-breaking debut trilogy – Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Mercy, and Ancillary Sword. In her latest novel, Provenance, Leckie returns to the Imperial Radch empire for a story about power, theft, privilege and birthright, and a hero who is worlds away from your typical SciFi lead.
