#ShortStoryMonth Day Twenty-Four — Nothing Without Us, edited by Cait Gordon and Talia Johnson

24

Gimme

I’ve almost always got an anthology or two on the horizon I’m looking forward to, so narrowing it down to one today was rough. But! Recently, there was a successful kickstarter for Nothing Without Us and I freaking can’t wait for this anthology. Edited by Cait Gordon and Talia Johnson, it’s the kind of anthology I love the most, described on its website thusly:

Nothing Without Us is a multi-genre, own-voices anthology where the lead characters identify as disabled, Deaf, neurodiverse, Spoonie, and/or manage mental illness. This collection includes both speculative and realistic fiction, which flow together beautifully as we navigate through the stories of these heroes.

Watching the kickstarter hit the goals (and then stretch to an audio version!) was awesome, and now all I have to do is wait patiently for the book to appear.

Wait.

Patiently?

Damn.


I’ve also loved every Trebor Healey collection thus far, so knowing that Falling, his latest collection, is coming soon is also a great piece of news; ditto Stories to Sing in the Dark by Matthew Bright, who is a short fiction author (and amazing editor and amazing cover designer) I’ve mentioned about a bajillion times before.

What about you? Any upcoming pieces (or collections, or anthologies) you’re looking forward to?
