I loved these short stories. I think the only other Afrofuturism and Afrofantasy books I've read are all Nnedi Okorafor books (which are fabulous!) and it was nice to see such a variety here. Minsoo Kang's "The Virtue of Unfaithful Translations" is probably my favorite - the idea of poking at Asian-influenced fantasies within a serious story is very appealing. These stories run the gamut from fantasy fiction to horror to science fiction and back around again. A great mixture of short stories all around.

A wonderful collection of speculative short stories written by authors of color that give voice to a wide variety of African-American, Asian-American, Indian, and Native American perspectives and themes. While some of the stories lean more toward sci-fi and the fantastical, others feel grounded and horrific enough to belong on Black Mirror. This is a collection I'd strongly recommend to anyone who enjoyed N. K. Jemisin's "How Long 'til Black Future Month."
