Katherine Addison
Katherine Addison is a pen name used by author Sarah Monette, who was born and raised in Oak Ridge Tennessee. Sarah began writing at the age of twelve.

Her short fiction has been picked by The Year’s Best Science Fiction and The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror.

Sarah reviews fiction, while Katherine reviews nonfiction. That said, she reads very little fiction these days.

She writes under the Katherine Addison name because in the year 2009, Ace decided not to re-sign her. Tor picked her up on the condition she write under a pen name. She was still attempting to come to grips with this, as it was a horribly crippling blow to her ego. It was during this time, in August of 2010, that she broke her ankle. It took a plate and nine titanium screws to fix it and make it functional again.

However, the six weeks of immobility caused a horrible flare up of Restless Leg Syndrome that doesn’t appear likely to flare back down. This had horrible effects on her abilities to write, since it seems that when you cannot sleep, everything ends up going to hell, too.

She was also working full time during 2012 and 2013, which cut things down more drastically on her attention span and energy. At the end of 2013, she began a part time job, and at the start of 2014 was put on a new RLS medication that appears to be helping her out. This kept her from writing for around five years.

She likes to ride dressage with Milo, her Holsteiner cross for leisure.

Katherine received her BA from Case Western Reserve University. Her PhD and MA, she got from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Despite graduating summa cum laude, not a single one of her degrees is even the tiniest bit useful to her in her day job or her writing. This is something she believes is an object lesson to everybody.

“The Goblin Emperor” has been nominated for a Hugo for Best Book in the year 2015. It was also nominated for Nebula and World Fantasy Awards, both for Best Novel in the year 2015. The novel was named by Unbound Worlds as one of the hundred best fantasy novels of all time. It won the Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel.

Katherine’s debut novel, called “The Goblin Emperor”, was released in the year 2014. Her work is from the fantasy and historical mystery genres.

“The Goblin Emperor” is the first stand alone novel and was released in the year 2014. The youngest and half-goblin son of the Emperor, Maia, has lived his whole life in exile, having been distant from the Imperial Court and the lethal intrigue suffusing it. When his dad and three sons in line for the throne get killed in an “accident”, he doesn’t have any choice but to take his place as the sole surviving and rightful heir.

Wholly unschooled in the art of court politics, he doesn’t have any advisors, no friends, and is only certain that whomever killed his brothers and dad could make an attempt on his life at any moment they wanted.

Surrounded by the sycophants that are only eager to curry some favor with the new emperor, and is overwhelmed with the burdens of this new life, he is unable to trust anybody. Amid the swirl of the plots to depose of him, the offers of arranged marriages, not to mention the spectre of the unknown conspirators lurking out in the shadows, he has to quickly adjust to his life as the Goblin Emperor.

The whole time, he is by himself, attempting to find just one friend. And hoping for the slightest chance of romance, but vigilant against all the unseen foes that threaten him, lest he lose his throne. Or his own life.

Katherine delivers a high fantasy novel that is heartfelt, hopeful, and focused on some characters who pick kindness and empathy repeatedly, even in certain circumstances that might make some turn to cynicism. This is one unique tale that is sophisticated, rich, and political, with things like dark magic, courtly intrigue, and steampunk technology.

“The Cobbler’s Boy” is the second stand alone novel and was released in the year 2018. Christopher Marlowe, bookish and brilliant, is just fifteen years old and is desperate to qualify for a scholarship to the King’s School so that he can escape his brutal dad.

The only that could have helped him out has been murdered, and now the killers are hunting for Kit.

The writers do a fantastic job of balancing first love, intrigue, and family conflict in the novel. Kit’s conflicting motivations feel realistic and make some sense of plot situations. The tensions are extremely powerful and are focused around Kit’s own life. This is a well written novel, with both authors putting their strong writing chops to good use, and do a wonderful job of making readers care what happens to Kit as well as his family.

“The Angel of the Crows” is the third stand alone novel and was released in the year 2020. This novel is set in a world where killers stalk the night and the ultimate power is naming.

This is not the tale you believe it is. Nor are these the characters you believe they are. It also isn’t the book that your are expecting.

In the alternate 1880s London this is set in, angels inhabit each public building, and werewolves and vampires walk the streets with human beings in a well-regulated truce. It is quite the fantastic utopia. Except for a few minor things. Angels can Fall, and that Fall is a lot like a nuclear bomb in both the metaphysical and physical worlds. Humans stay humans, with all their greed, murderous intent, passions, and kindness intact.

Jack the Ripper stalks the streets of London, as well. However, this London has got an Angel. One called the Angel of the Crows.

This novel smoothly transports readers back to the 1880s to the streets of London with how it’s written. The book hooks you in, with its quick pace and it has some surprises that aren’t even expected in the slightest.
