Aliette de Bodard

Writer of Science Fiction and Fantasy

This is the home page of Aliette de Bodard, writer of fantasy and science fiction (and the very occasional horror piece). Aliette has won three Nebula Awards, an Ignyte Award, a Locus Award, a European Science Fiction Society award, a British Fantasy Award and four BSFA (British Science Fiction Association) Awards. She is a current Hugo finalist.

She is the author of the sapphic romantic fantasy Fireheart Tiger, in which a diplomat princess faces her former lover and must decide the future of her country–and her own.

She also wrote the Hugo-award nominated series The Universe of Xuya, Vietnamese-inspired space opera with sentient spaceships: a complete list of these stories and some additional background information can be found here. Short novels set in this universe include Seven of Infinities (Subterranean Press, October 2020, Locus Award finalist), and Nebula-award winning The Tea Master and the Detective.

Finally, she is the author of the Dominion of the Fallen series set in a devastated Gothic Paris, which comprises The House of Shattered Wings The House of Binding Thorns, and The House of Sundering Flames.

She lives in Paris, France.
