“There’s nothing new under the sun, but there are new suns,” proclaimed Octavia E. Butler.

This month we will be reading New Suns: Original Speculative Fiction by People of Color, edited by Nisi Shawl.

A showcase of emerging and seasoned writers of colour, this anthology spans science fiction, fantasy, horror and their overlaps. These are authors aware of our many possible pasts and futures, authors freed of stereotypes and clichéd expectations, ready to dazzle you with their daring genius.

We’re so excited to discuss this - see you there!

Readers don’t have to buy the bookclub book from the shop, however we do rely on those book sales to be able to keep the event & refreshments free, to pay our booksellers for their time prepping & running book clubs and to keep the lights on. Please do NOT buy your books from Amzon (including their kindles!), if you cannot afford to buy the book then PLEASE support your local library.
