Science fiction and fantasy author William F. Wu’s most recent book is a composite novel made of ten adventures that were originally published separately as short stories. A Temple of Forgotten Spirits follows Jack Hong, who is following a mystical unicorn out of Chinese mythology. Along the way, Jack learns about Chinese-American history and his own identity. Wu says Jack is one his readers’ favorite characters. He’s sarcastic, outspoken, and gets into trouble. Wu is deliberate about how Jack gets into trouble, however. Jack is never able to solve a problem with violence – any time he’s in a violent altercation, he loses. Wu wants his readers to see Jack instead succeed through courage and persistence, not physical violence.
