Hey there peeps! We are excited to introduce one of our reading selections for #JuneReads, Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History (publ. Crossed Genres) edited by Rose Fox and Daniel Josè Older!
We are delighted to announce Rose Fox and Daniel Jose Older, will be our chat guests during our LIVE Twitter discussion for Long Hidden, Sunday, July 6th at 4:00pm EST!
Long Hidden is an anthology featuring 27 speculative fiction stories from authors including Tananarive Due, Nnedi Okorafor, Ken Liu, Lisa Bolekaja, and Sofia Samatar. In addition, the stories feature some amazing art illustrations all made possible after the success of the anthology’s Kickstarter project.
an Excerpt from Long Hidden‘s website:
There is a long and honorable legacy of literary resistance to erasure. This anthology partakes of that legacy. It will feature stories from the margins of speculative history, each taking place between 1400 and the early 1900s and putting a speculative twist—an element of science fiction, fantasy, horror, or the unclassifiably strange—on real past events.
