The Bookmaking Habits of Select Species by Ken Liu | Lightspeed Magazine

There is no definitive census of all the intelligent species in the universe. Not only are there perennial arguments about what qualifies as intelligence, but each moment and everywhere, civilizations rise and fall, much as the stars are born and die. Time devours all.

I'm a science fiction/fantasy writer, social justice activist and fangirl of many things.

"Everyone makes books." Not only do I just love this story for the glimpses into other worlds and other species, I also love that it made me start thinking about the kind of books exist in the worlds I create in fiction. Oddly, it's not a question I generally ask myself, though you'd think it would be one of the first things to come to mind. Wouldn't this make an excellent interview question for any writer? What kind of books do your characters create?
