About the Author:

Bill Campbell is the author of three novels, including My Booty Novel and Sunshine Patriots, as well as the essay collection, Pop Culture: Politics, Puns, and “Poohbutt” from a Liberal Stay-at-Home Dad. He lives in Washington, DC. Edward Austin Hall writes journalism, poetry, and fiction. His writings about comics and comics creators have appeared in the Atlanta Journal–Constitution, Code Z: Black Visual Culture Now, and the Dictionary of Literary Biography.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this wildly varied collection designed to showcase multiculturism, diversity, and characters of color in genre fiction, editors Campbell (Koontown Killing Kaper) and Hall (Chimera Island) bring together 40 authors to create an experience that's both eye-opening and unpredictable. With stories ranging from almost painfully short to novella-length, representing a drastically wide assortment of themes, tones, and voices, there's a little something for everyone, but also a significant number of creative misfires. Standouts include N.K. Jemisin's €œToo Many Yesterdays, Not Enough Tomorrows,€ a tale of finding connection in an apocalyptic setting; S.P. Somtow's Japan-set murder mystery, €œThe Pavilion of Frozen Women€ ; Carlos Hernandez's €œThe Aphotic Ghost,€ a story of an older man seeking his son's body on Mount Everest; Daniel José Older's Men in Black–like tale of ghostly government agents, €œProtected Entity€ ; and Tenea D. Johnson's €œThe Taken,€ a piece about a radical group determined to inflict understanding of slavery through reenactment. Racial and cultural themes are prevalent, but just as many stories steer clear of obvious messages, offering a provocative, entertaining, and vital anthology that accomplishes its mission. (Oct.)
