“There’s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns,” proclaimed Octavia E. Butler.
New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color showcases emerging and seasoned writers of many races telling stories filled with shocking delights, powerful visions of the familiar made strange.

These are authors aware of our many possible pasts and futures, authors freed of stereotypes and clichés, ready to dazzle you with their daring genius.
Unexpected brilliance shines forth from every page.

I enjoyed this anthology from beginning to end. The foreword by Levar Burton is so cool because I was first introduced to one of the authors in this book (Rebecca Roanhorse) when I heard him read one of her stories on his podcast Levar Burton Reads. This collection has a good variety and I wasn’t familiar with most of the authors so now I have new writers to check out. As usual Sistahscifi provided great service!
