- Neil Gaiman, author of "Coraline": "I think this period of time is going to be a fertile time for storytellers for decades and, I hope, centuries to come.
- Lois Lowry, author of "The Giver": "We're at the part of the book where the reader is feeling a terrible sense of suspense."
- Nnedi Okorafor, author of "The Shadow Speaker": "One thing I've felt since all of this has happened, is this idea of ... oh my gosh, it's finally happening."
- Max Brooks, author of "World War Z": "Those big crises that affect us all have to be solved by all of us ... it may not be some alpha male with a big gun or some clairvoyant wizard or someone with magical powers."
