Bathing and banking, animals and adultery: human culture contains a truly daunting array of elements. The fourth volume of the NEW WORLDS series takes readers on a tour of all-new topics, delving into everything from childbirth to dream interpretation to the importance of generosity, as award-winning fantasy author and former anthropologist Marie Brennan continues her in-depth exploration of worldbuilding in science fiction and fantasy.

This volume collects essays from the fourth year of the New Worlds Patreon.


New Worlds is an essential worldbuilding reference for writers of speculative fiction. Marie Brennan’s deep love and knowledge of cultures around the world makes her eminently qualified to guide us through some of the lesser-known (and lesser thought-of) parts of human behavior. More than once I stopped reading, struck by one observation or another, and said, “Wow, that would make a great story.” Highly recommended.— Christopher Paolini
