Original speculative fiction by people of colour edited by Nisi Shawl 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 clichés, ready to dazzle you with their daring genius.
New Suns is the first anthology book I have read, and I have to say I was not disappointed. Each of the stories has their own unique quality. If you are a fan of science fiction, fantasy or horror this book is for you and has it all.
Some of the stories challenged my imagination to put myself in the shoes of the characters. The situations and circumstances they found themselves in sometimes were extraordinary.
Reading New Suns has opened my mind up to trying different genres instead of limiting myself. There is a bigger world out there!
I recommend New Suns to anyone who would like to open their minds to something different or to those who like to read Sci-Fi, Horror or fantasy. Enjoy!
