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.
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.
