There are too many bon mots to milk. Here are a few: We're getting Older and Older. The Older you get depends on whether you show up on time. For the young at heart, we recommend you pay attention to your Olders... OK, now that we've flogged those old chestnuts, get serious for two siblings, each of whom is a provocative and brilliant writer in their own right.
Malka Older is a writer, aid worker, and PhD candidate. Her science fiction political thriller, Infomocracy, was named one of 2016's best books by both Kirkus and BookRiot, and the sequel, Null States, will be published in September 2017. You can find links to her writing, which has appeared in at Tor.com, Sundog Lit, Capricious, Reservoir, Inkscrawl, Rogue Agent, and Wired, among others, at malkaolder.wordpress.com/publications/.
