For TULSA BOOK REVIEW, Ryder Miller praises Hannu Rajaniemi and Jacob Weisman‘s THE NEW VOICES OF SCIENCE FICTION.

Great and inspiring work from a field that can continue to astound and get you to slow down and think about uncomfortable issues.

John DeNardo in “Sex Robots, the Future of Racism, and Cthulhu Vacations” at KIRKUS feels much the same.

Readers often turn to established writers whose work they’ve previously enjoyed for more of the same. That’s fine, but to add a little variety I also recommend supplementing that with stories by new authors. THE NEW VOICES OF SCIENCE FICTION, edited by Hannu Rajaniemi and Jacob Weisman (Tachyon), is the perfect anthology to do just that. It is a collection of recent fiction by up-and-coming writers in the field. One story is “The Shape of My Name,” by Nino Cipri, about a trans man’s attempts to reconcile with his mother, who rejects his gender identity. The mother, who has access to a time machine keyed to the family’s genetics, seems more at ease traveling the time stream, making it more difficult for her son, Heron, to get closure.

The anthology is a Staff Pick at King’s Books in Tacoma, WA.

This exciting collection features up-and-coming science fiction writers, from known authors, like Rebecca Roanhorse & Sam J Miller, to new voices. Perfect for both fans and people new to the genre. [sweet pea]
