Walking the Clouds: An Anthology of Indigenous Science Fiction

by: Grace L. Dillon

Publisher: Univ of Arizona Pr (2012)


Staff Pick by comrade: Lucas Smith

This book is a mixed bag, as it falls into the anthology trap of abstracting bits of novels and thus rendering the stories ineffectual. Despite this, much of the latter half is very fun reading; you would do better to skip the slipstream section altogether. This book is maybe better used as a springboard to help readers explore the world of Native science-fiction.
