Now Out: Anne Richter in Sisters of the Revolution

June 26th, 2015 § 0 comments


Now available from PM Press: Sisters of the Revolution, a Feminist Speculative Fiction Anthology edited by Ann and Jeff VanderMeer, which includes my translation of Belgian fabulist Anne Richter’s “The Sleep of Plants.” I’m delighted to have her appear in the context of such authors as L. Timmel Duchamp, Nalo Hopkinson, James Tiptree Jr., Catherynne Valente, Joanna Russ, Tanith Lee, Angela Carter, Ursula Le Guin, Octavia Butler, Nnedi Okorafor, Karin Tidbeck,

Kirkus Review‘s starred review says: “There is probably no better time for this anthology to emerge, as the SF/F world is rocked by a clash over the value of diverse voices. While the original dates of publication of these stories range from the 1970s to the current decade, and include both stalwarts of their respective genres and relative newcomers, they all feel fresh as ever. Touching on issues from surveillance, misogyny, and marriage to queerness, family dynamics, and gender fluidity… these stories, coming from a variety of genres, subgenres, and nonrealist traditions, are timeless and breathtaking in scope and power.”

At, Mahvesh Murad says these stories do “exactly what you’d want them to—they tear apart cliches, they question gender and it’s implications, they look at identity using satire and humour and darkness with a sharp intellectual examination of stigma and society’s rules.”
