Elite Groups in SFF

Thanks to Kate Lechler for running my short essay, “Elite Groups in SFF,” in her column over at FantasyLiterature.com.

In the essay, I look at the similarities between elite groups of warriors in everything from Stars Wars, to Dune, to Avatar, to Game of Thrones, and I talk about why we get so invested in these characters to begin with.
