War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.
George Orwell once wrote of a world where abuse of power begins with an abuse of language and a bastardization of truth. Some of today's most exciting voices in speculative fiction explore the ramifications of those ideas in Ignorance Is Strength.
The Dystopia Triptych is a series of three anthologies of dystopian fiction. Ignorance Is Strength--before the dystopia--focuses on society during its descent into absurdity and madness. Burn the Ashes--during the dystopia--turns its attention to life during the strangest, most dire times. Or Else the Light--after the dystopia--concludes the saga with each author sharing their own vision of how we as a society might crawl back from the precipice of despair.
Ignorance Is Strength features all-new, never-before-published works by the following authors, in order of appearance: Carrie Vaughn, Tim Pratt, Rich Larson, Cadwell Turnbull, Karin Lowachee, Adam-Troy Castro, Caroline M. Yoachim, Hugh Howey, An Owomoyela, Seanan McGuire, Dominica Phetteplace, Alex Irvine, Tobias S. Buckell, Scott Sigler, Darcie Little Badger, Violet Allen, and Merc Fenn Wolfmoor.
