The SciFri Book Club finished this fall’s exploration of fantastical fiction and diverse futures in New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction By People of Color. Along the way, we looked at stories by Indigenous, Black, Chicanx and South Asian writers and discussed some of the worlds that have blossomed in the imaginations of people who have historically been marginalized in science fiction, fantasy and other speculative genres.
But there’s much, much more to read and explore. Below we’ve compiled recommendations for additional authors, story collections, podcasts and even films from our radio guests.
Love After The End, edited by Joshua Whitehead: “In terms of authors, I recently had a story inLove After The End, an “anthology of two-spirit and Indigiqueer speculative fiction” edited by Joshua Whitehead, so that’s a great place to look.”
Walking the Clouds, edited by Grace Dillon: “As well as the table of contents ofWalking the Clouds, edited by Grace Dillon, the person to coin the term ‘Indigenous Futurisms’.”
