Edited by Mia Darien, this anthology is full of stories about people who for various reasons just aren't quite equal. Whether it's unjust slavery ("Yorsen," by Christy Rigby), fear and prejudice of the "Other" ("Ashes," by Mia Darien; "The Victors," by Jessica Nicholls; "Blood and Scorn," by A. Star), differences of body image, self, and culture ("Blank Canvas," by T.S. Bazelli), or simply being different ("The Oracle's Curse," by Michelle Recenberger; "Air for the Breathless," by Val Reiman). Each story shows people struggling for their own voices, their right to be heard, and often their right just to be.
As with other Darien anthologies, the stories in this book are each worthy of praise in their own right. As a collection, there is a good mix of style, subject, and length. Science fiction, fantasy, urban fantasy, and non-Eurocentric fantasy are all included. The authors' proceeds from the book are being donated to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). In times when the "Other" is under both direct and indirect attack by powerful adversaries of the supposed majority, the ACLU is an ally, but it can't do everything alone.
As with other collections that Mia Darien has edited for different causes, I highly recommend this book. Consistently great writing, great cause, great price! Read it!
