Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

An astonishing new anthology of original stories by leading South Asian, Caribbean and African authors, as well as North American and British writers of colour. Writer and editor Hopkinson notes that the science fiction genre speaks much about the experience of being alienated, but contains so little writing by alienated people themselves'. Collected in this anthology are bold, imaginative stories centred around the imagined futures of those people who live in countries that are deemed to be 'third world', that aim to redress this imbalance.'
