Description

Walking the Clouds: An Anthology of Indigenous Science Fiction is the first-ever anthology of Indigenous science fiction featuring First Nations and Native American authors. Grace Dillon collects some of the finest examples of the craft with contributions by Native American, First Nations, Aboriginal Australian, and New Zealand Maori authors. The collection includes seminal authors such as Gerald Vizenor and Eden Robinson, historically important contributions often categorized as "magical realism" by authors like Leslie Marmon Silko and Sherman Alexie, and authors more recognizable to science fiction fans like William Sanders and Stephen Graham Jones. Other contributors include Diane Glancy, Robert Sullivan, Amadahy, Nalo Hopkinson, Gerry William, Simon Ortiz, Archie Weller, and Andrea Hairston. Dillon's engaging introduction situates the pieces in the larger context of science fiction and its conventions. Highly Recommended.
