This post is for the sixth SFF.SE topic challenge of 2022, in which the site's community is encouraged to take part together in asking and answering questions on a particular topic each month. According to community votes on the topic challenge proposals thread, the June 2022 topic challenge is going to be devoted to an American speculative fiction writer:

Naomi Novik

What's a topic challenge and how do I take part?

See Announcing a Topic Challenge program for SFF.SE, and also this main meta post. In short, during June 2022 we should all try to either read some Naomi Novik stories and ask interesting questions about them, or help out by answering other people's questions about it.

Participation is not obligatory in any sense, but those who participate will be forever remembered in the annals of our history. We'll keep a list of all Naomi Novik questions asked during June 2022 in an answer to this meta post. At the end of the month, I'll collate some data like highest-scoring question, most-viewed question, highest-scoring answer, etc. There won't be any real-world rewards like in the old days when Stack Exchange was smaller and more generous, but I'll be awarding at least one bounty after the end of the month (assuming there's at least one good answer posted).

What's next?

Future topic challenges will be chosen by community votes, so come over and propose or vote on suggestions at:

Propose future topics for SFF topic challenges!

(The Naomi Novik answer will be deleted from that thread at the start of June, since already chosen topics shouldn't stick at the top of the thread and distract people from those still to be voted on.)
