dc.description.abstractIn introducing his original novel, the author discusses the influences of horror authors Edgar Allen Poe, H. P. Lovecraft, and Stephen King, as well as other influences from movies and theater. He discusses the amount of research involved in writing science fiction, particularly the science of the real planet Mars, and the need to create a wide range of background documents along with world building. He writes “Some related questions I wanted to answer in my SIP are as follows: what does it look like to be part of an anticapitalist revolution? What does it look like to have that revolution actually succeed in the end, and to have positive outcomes both domestically and elsewhere? How is this process complicated or enhanced by a science fiction setting on another planet?” “Another common trope I hope to have broken in my work is centering on two female identifying characters ... By making the lead protagonist and antagonist both female-identifying, I am diverging from a male-centric perspective which has dominated much of science fiction literature and media in general.”en_US
