Product Description
 
This collection of short stories showcases some of the best work that Australian literature has to offer in this new decade. Featuring work from both emerging and established writers of colour, the stories in Collisions transcend genre and experiment with style. They are necessary reading for everybody with an interest in the future of fiction and our planet. Although many of these visions are dystopic, the quality of their writers is something the future has to look forward to.
What does the future hold? Collisions prods at what it means for each author, and while many will come to expect speculative fiction at surface level, the breadth of imagination transcends these boundaries. From an account of a tense dinner party amidst impending signs of climate catastrophe; to a playful fable about a father turning his family backyard into a graveyard; and an irreverent yet thoughtful tale of a gang of activists planning an attack on ASIO drones in a Kyle Sandilands government, these stories are experimental, genre-bending and lucid.
Collisions presents a diverse collection of work that have often been ignored or elided in a time where marginalised voices are still unheard. It exists tore-centre the voices of writers of colour and to encourage dynamic narratives, to bring about a more robust literary landscape in Australia' s future. Contributors include- Claire G. Coleman, Elizabeth Flux, Bobuq Sayed, Bryant Apolonio, Mykaela Saunders, and more.
