Sinossi

How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens explores the immigrant experience in a science fiction setting, with exciting fiction and poetry from some of the genre’s best writers.

In these pages, you’ll find Sturgeon winner Sarah Pinsker’s robot grandmother, James Tiptree, Jr., Award winner Nisi Shawl’s prison planet and Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Award winner Ken Liu’s space- and time-spanning story of different kinds of ghosts. You’ll find Bryan Thao Worra’s Cthulhic poetry, and Pinckney Benedict’s sad, whimsical tale of genocide. You’ll travel to Frankfurt, to the moon, to Mars, to the underworld, to unnamed alien planets, under the ocean, through clusters of asteroids. You’ll land on the fourth planet from the star Deneb, and an alternate universe version of Earth, and a world of Jesuses.

This is not a textbook. You will not find here polemics on immigration policy or colonialism. The most compelling fiction articulates the unsaid, the unbearable, and the incomprehensible; these stories say things about the immigration experience that a lecture never could. The purpose of this book is, first and foremost, to entertain the casual and the sophisticated reader, but its genesis is a response to the question: Who do we become when we live with the unfamiliar?

5.0 su 5 stelle Enjoyed very much 16 aprile 2015
Di David Michmerhuizen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
I don't recall how I came to buy this but eventually I pulled this from the backlog and started working through it. Not every story is straight-up SF, but even the few that aren't are good, and the ones that are are first rate. I had never heard of the publisher, URB. They are small and seem to have selected stories for this collection that are a bit outside of the mainstream of SF. Even so, they were interesting and well done and I am more than satisfied with the purchase. Recommended to anyone who likes anthologies of short science fiction, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
