Publisher Description

Follow twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors on their journeys through Asia and beyond. Stories that explore magic and science. Stories about love, revenge, and choices. Stories that challenge ideas about race, belonging, and politics. Stories about where we come from and where we are going. Each wrestling between ghostly pasts and uncertain future. Each trying to find a voice in history. Recommended by Booklist (American Library Association), Library Journal and Locus (Gardner Dozois).

ALL EMOTIONS ARE UNIVERSAL. WE LIVE, WE DREAM, WE STRIVE, WE DIE . . .

Orphans and drug-smuggling in deep space. Mechanical arms in steampunk Vancouver. Djinns and espionage in futuristic Istanbul. Humanoid robot in steamy Kerala. Monsters in the jungles of Cebu. Historic time travel in Gyeongbok Palace. A rocket launch in post-apocalyptic Tokyo. A drunken ghost in Song Dynasty China. A displaced refugee skating on an ice planet. And much more.

Embrace them as you take on their journeys. And don't look back . . .

Praise for WHERE THE STARS RISE

"This collection is essential for anyone interested in the diverse and engaging possibilities of fantasy and science fiction." — Booklist (American Library Association)

" This fascinating collection addresses issues of immigration, dual cultures, and ethnic issues through genre devices such as ghosts, steampunk robots, and planetary exploration. SF readers looking to discover new voices will enjoy this volume that reflects the eclecticism of Asian culture." Library Journal

" A lot of good reading to be found in Where the Stars Rise." Locus (Gardner Dozois)

 "A wealth of stories running the gamut from poignant to mindblowing, rewarding journeys both faraway and familiar."         —Aliette de Bodard, Nebula Award-winning author of Dominion of the Fallen saga

"Where the Stars Rise is a hell of a lot of fun. Great writers, magnificent storytelling, and worlds I wanted to spend a lot more time in—no matter how dangerous they were." — Rob Boffard, author of the Outer Earth series
