Far Out: Recent Queer Science Fiction and Fantasy

by Paula Guran Editor

Queerness and speculative fiction seem like they would be a natural fit for each other. Both imagine ways of being that are not necessarily reflected in the world we currently inhabit, yet looking back at science fiction and fantasy works over the last thirty years, one finds a paucity of queer representation. This volume seeks to remedy that. With short stories from a variety of authors covering the full spectrum of what queerness entails, Far Out is a vital addition to the library of any science fiction and fantasy fan, and any lover of queer fiction more broadly. Contributors include Rachel Swirsky, Caitlín R. Kiernan, A. C. Wise, Tristan Alice Nieto, Christopher Barzak, An Owomoyela, G. V. Anderson, Tamsyn Muir, and many others.
