Immigrant Sci-Fi Short Stories

Regular price $50.00

Speculative fiction from the perspective of the immigrant, old and new, stories from the distant past and the far future, with a call to the experience of the present.

Tales from writers with Latinx, Caribbean, Asian, African, Arabic, North American, East European origins, and more, challenge the reader with stories that spill out into space, parallel realms or just hidden in plain sight. The stories explore the world from the perspective of the incoming, whether necessitated through war or oppression, financial or familial need, or with hope for a better future, examining visions of displacement and relocation in future and speculative settings. New stories selected from open submissions are set alongside classic sci-fi by the likes of Otto (Eando) Binder and Zenna Henderson, modern stories by such authors as Celu Amberstone and Ken Liu, and older, realist immigrant narratives by Abraham Cahan, Sui Sin Far, Lee Yan Phou, Constantine Panunzio and more. Complemented by a foreword by author E.C. Osondu and an insightful introduction by Betsy Huang, Ph.D., this is an intriguing view of the conflict and anxiety between the settled and the unsettled.

The new, contemporary and notable writers featured are: Ali Abbas, Celu Amberstone, Bebe Bayliss, Christine Bennett, Ben Blattberg, Judi Calhoun, V. Castro, P.A.
