Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lest postcolonial in the subtitle intimidate, let it be noted that this is a strong anthology that, regardless of thematic concern, showcases authors with some real experience of colonization from all over the world. Given that so much sf is concerned with encounters with the other or alien intending domination, the genre and colonialism are, of course, not strangers. The book's five sections are "The Body," the last of whose contents, Larissa Lai's fascinating "Rachel," glimpses a readily familiar character; "Future Earth," including Vandana Singh's "Delhi," in which one Aseem is unstuck in the city's timestream; "Allegory," which features a particularly chilling and timely presentation of enforced otherness in Wayde Compton's "The Blue Road: A Fairy Tale"; "Encounters with the Alien," in which Greg van Eekhout's "Native Aliens" questions the nature of being alien; and "Re-imagining the Past," with Tobias S. Buckell's "Necahual," about a soldier in a "liberation army" more concerned with making a pure-human society than with living with the no longer purely human and the natives of colonized planets.

Review

. . . the editors have collected an excellent group of stories that often show finesse in approaching difficult subjects regardless of genre.
—Pop Matters (Pop Matters)

...the themes of the stories and the importance of the project are very strong.
—Science Fiction Research Association (Science Fiction Re..)

It manages, somehow, to transcend that heavy millstone and kick some good ol' storytellin' ass.
—The Vancouver Rain Review of Books (Vancouver RainReview)

Arsenal Pulp Press has put together an edition worth owning.
—Challenging Destiny Online (Challenging Destiny)

...a strong anthology that, regardless of thematic concern, showcases authors with some real experience of colonization from all over the world.
—Booklist (Booklist)

Author Nalo Hopkinson and science fiction scholar Uppinder Mehan have cultivated this anthology of new short stories from emerging and established postcolonial writers all over the world. The 19 unique stories here are framed by a valuable introduction by Hopkinson and duly academic final essay by Mehan.
—Quill & Quire (Quill & Quire)

The stories cover such a range of material ... that the anthology resists attempts to categorize it. It is not entirely science fiction, not entirely fantasy, not even entirely postcolonial literature. And this resistance is largely the point of So Long Been Dreaming. Such boundaries belong to the past, the anthology suggests, but we'e living in the future now.
