Short stories


Speculative fiction is an umbrella term for narratives that are based in the real world but include elements of fantasy, horror, science fiction, dystopia; the spiritual, the strange, the un-real. The title of this collection is based on a quotation from Octavia E. Butler, a figurehead of black speculative fiction. New Suns, however, includes short stories from lesser-known authors and provides an introduction to the genre, or a broadening of horizons for those that have only read some of the more mainstream, white speculative fiction authors such as Margaret Atwood.
