So long been dreaming : postcolonial science fiction & fantasy by Nalo Hopkinson( Book )

9 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 409 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So Long Been Dreaming: Postcolonial Science Fiction & Fantasy" is an anthology of original new stories by leading African, Asian, South Asian and Aboriginal authors, as well as North American and British writers of color. Stories of imagined futures abound in Western writing. Writer and editor Nalo Hopkinson notes that the science fiction/fantasy genre "speaks so much about the experience of being alienated but contains so little writing by alienated people themselves." It's an oversight that Hopkinson and Mehan aim to correct with this anthology. The book depicts imagined futures from the perspectives of writers associated with what might loosely be termed the "third world." It includes stories that are bold, imaginative, edgy; stories that are centered in the worlds of the "developing" nations; stories that dare to dream what we might develop into. The wealth of postcolonial literature has included many who have written insightfully about their pasts and presents. With "So Long Been Dreaming" they creatively address their futures

Whether she is retelling The Tempest as a new Caribbean myth, filling a shopping mall with unfulfilled ghosts, or herding chickens that occasionally breathe fire, Hopkinson continues to create bold fiction that transcends boundaries and borders."--Back cover

Fierce or fearful, they are courageous and honorable--occasionally unscrupulous and tainted--but all warriors worthy of the name. Join bestselling authors Elizabeth Bear, Nancy Kress, George R. R. Martin, Elizabeth Moon and many others as they celebrate the strong female protagonist in what Publishers Weekly calls an 'epic anthology.'" --

Suddenly she is getting hot flashes that seem to forge objects out of thin air. Only this time, the lost item that has washed up on the shore is not her old toy truck or her hairbrush, but a 4-year-old boy. As Calamity takes the child into her care, she discovers that all is not as it seems: the boy's family is most unusual.

In Cheerful Rest, Makeda finds exactly what she's been looking for: an opportunity to live apart from Abby.
