A collection of twenty-five tales explores the possible futures of the United States from such writers as G. Willow Wilson, Justina Ireland, Seanan McGuire, and Gabby Rivera.
In these tumultuous times, in our deeply divided country, many people are angry, frightened, and hurting. Knowing that imagining a brighter tomorrow has always been an act of resistance, editors Victor LaValle and John Joseph Adams invited an extraordinarily talented group of writers to share stories that explore new forms of freedom, love, and justice. They asked for narratives that would challenge oppressive American myths, release us from the chokehold of our history, and give us new futures to believe in.
They also asked that the stories be badass.
The result is this spectacular collection of twenty-five tales that blend the dark and the light, the dystopian and the utopian. These tales are vivid with struggle and hardship--whether it's the othered and the terrorized, or dragonriders and covert commandos--but these characters don't flee, they fight.
Thrilling, inspiring, and a sheer joy to read, A People's Future of the United States is a gift for anyone who believes in our power to dream a just world.
