Solaris to Publish New Suns, an Anthology Edited by Nisi Shawl

Solaris will be publishing an incredible, bold and powerful new anthology—a collection of original speculative fiction by people of colour edited by award-winning author and editor Nisi Shawl.

Featuring some of the most exciting names in the world of SF&F, New Suns is an  anthology of contemporary stories by emerging and seasoned writers, bringing forth unexpected brilliance that shines forth from every page. Available March 2019.

Check out the full cover and the table of contents below!

Discussing the anthology, Nisi Shawl had this to say:

“As one of speculative fiction’s swelling number of authors of color I have spent years wanting so hard to put together an anthology just like New Suns. We are legion! And our stories are as diverse in range as they are unheralded in the genre. Nearly everyone I asked to contribute told me that at some point during the creative process they’d thought what they were writing would never be published, for various reasons: too angry, too light, too long, too weird. Expectations of writers of color can be even more constraining to us than they are for our white colleagues, so it was a great pleasure to be able to charge right over them! Getting these stories out to you is a major joy, and I’m so glad you get to read them now.”
