Rivers Solomon



Rivers Solomon writes about life in the margins, where they are much at home. In addition to appearing on the Stonewall Honor List and winning a Firecracker Award, Solomon's debut novel AN UNKINDNESS OF GHOSTS (Akashic Books) was a finalist for a Lambda, a Hurston/Wright, an Otherwise (formerly Tiptree) and a Locus award, among others. Solomon's second book, THE DEEP (Saga Press), based on the Hugo-nominated song of the same name by experimental hip-hop group clipping, was the winner of the 2020 Lambda Award and was nominated for a Nebula, Locus, Hugo, and World Fantasy award. Much anticipated, their third book, SORROWLAND (MCD/FSG) is forthcoming May 2021.

Solomon's short work appears in or is forthcoming from Black Warrior Review, the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, Guernica, Best American Short Stories, Tor.com, Best American Horror and Dark Fantasy, and elsewhere.

A refugee of the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade, Solomon was born on Turtle Island but currently resides in an isle off the coast of the Eurasian continent with their family.
