We’re pleased to announce the authors included in our upcoming anthology: Immigrant Sci-Fi Short Stories! Earlier this year, we opened for submissions from writers with a variety of personal connections to the experience of immigration, migration and relocation, in order to give voice to those telling stories from the perspective of the incoming. The book, due to be published in mid-March (UK) and late April 2023 (North America), combines new submissions, complemented by selected contemporary and modern stories, set in future, interstellar, fantastical and alternative realities, with a foundation of older, realist narratives exploring the plights and adventures of immigrants. Award-winning author of Alien Stories, E.C. Osondu, provides the foreword, alongside an insightful introduction by Betsy Huang, Ph.D., and with guidance from author and educator Sarah Raphael García, this is an intriguing view of the conflict and anxiety between the settled and the unsettled. We’re delighted to have chosen the stories below for inclusion:

Award-winning Māori novelist, short story writer, essayist, and editor Paula Morris provides the foreword, alongside an introduction by Dr. Eldon Yellowhorn, author of Turtle Island: The Story of North America's First People and more. With invaluable editorial support from professor and Indigenous literature specialist Marc André Fortin, we’re delighted to have chosen the stories below for inclusion:
