Delighted to help launch the cover for New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color, edited by Nisi Shawl (@NisiShawl), and published by Solaris in March 2019.
I have to say, this sounds brilliant. The cover art is gorgeous (props to artist/designer Yoshi Yoshitani yoshiyoshitani.com). Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
New Suns showcases emerging and seasoned writers of many races telling stories filled with shocking delights, powerful visions of the familiar made strange.
Between this book’s covers burn tales of science fiction, fantasy, horror, and their indefinable overlappings. These are authors aware of our many possible pasts and futures, authors freed of stereotypes and clichéd expectations, ready to dazzle you with their daring genius.
Unexpected brilliance shines forth from every page.
