New Suns Cover

I am absolutely thrilled to take part in the cover reveal for an incredible new anthology, New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color. Edited by the brilliant Nisi Shawl, author of Everfair, New Suns showcases both emerging and seasoned writers telling stories that are filled with shocking delights and powerful visions of the familiar made strange.

There is an array of stories on show in this anthology which journey across science fiction, fantasy, horror, and all of the less traveled places in between, places which free authors of stereotypes and clichéd expectations so that they can deliver dazzling new tales which will shine through as new suns on our literary horizons.

Some of the outstanding stories which you can look forward to include Blood and Bells by Karin Lowachee, The Fine Print by Chinelo Onwualu, The Shadow We Cast Through Time by Indrapramit Das, and Harvest by Rebecca Roanhorse. The anthology is introduced by the prolific actor and director LeVar Burton who played Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge in Star Trek: The Next Generation and Nisi Shawl brings the collection to a close with her afterword.

I am absolutely over the moon about the announcement of such a fantastic anthology and am completely in love with the beautiful cover, designed by Yoshi Yoshitani. Over the past few months I’ve been fortunate enough to read some incredible anthologies, such as The Djinn Falls in Love & Other Stories edited by Mahvesh Murad and Jared Shurin, and am very excited about delving into the radiant stories in New Suns.

Let me start my review off by saying that this series by J.Y Yang is legitimately incredible and deserves all of the stars ever. It’s a beautifully written novella series which contains a breathtaking world, intriguing characters, human/animal relations, and fascinating stories which expertly combine into an overarching plot. Each novella contributes something new, offering different perspectives which keeps the story fresh as well as a rich depth and breadth to the world, which by the way, is AMAZING. I tore through all 3 books in just a few days and cemented J.Y Yang as an auto-buy author for me!
