From the publisher

This anthology creates a dichotomy between the comfortable and the mysterious, providing a glimpse into hidden worlds and human nature; tantalizing in its mystique and refreshing in its insight into the minds of these exceptional Black British writers. It provides us with the opportunity to see what was previously unknown and to learn from what we see; to grow from what begins as a partial view but quickly transforms into the larger perspective. Secrets are uncovered; creatures are found; bodies buckle, whisper, float. In these stories we glimpse the dark and the light.

“These brilliant Black British creatives are writing themselves into speculative pasts and futures, widening an ever-growing circle of new visionary work that reimagines identities and cultures in a masterful form that readers love, the short story.”
Sheree Renée Thomas, 
Editor, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction
