As I was reading Love after the End, I was reminded just how colonialist SFF often is as a genre, whether it’s about “conquering new worlds” and literally establishing colonies, or centring Medieval England in fantasy stories, or just holding up white, straight, cis, male protagonists as the heroes. This collection is such a refreshing change of perspective. These stories include a relationship with the land that isn’t common in science fiction stories. They assume a greater responsibility for p ...more

What caught my attention immediately from the tone of Joshua Whitehead's introduction was the intention of this anthology to be nothing other than deliberate, clear, and personal with the representation of indigiqueerness, the exploration of indigenous people's relationship with self, AI, environment, family, beliefs, violence, and experiences.

While I didn't always understand what was going on, I don't think that it's my place to understand. And like all anthologies, loved some stories and was cold on others. Overall, a brilliant idea and I would love to see more from these authors.

Stories by indigenious people without the focus being on pain? Sign me up.
I hope it will be stories in which love is the main part and not the massive generational trauma because of colonialism. Which has it's place but somehow I never want that in front and center in my romances. Escapisme ftw 😬.

There's some really great stories in here. I particularly enjoyed "Nameless" by Nazbah Tom and "Abacus" by Nathan Adler.

i liked this collection! connected with some stories more than others but that’s fairly typical in a multi author collection imo. would seek out more work from any of them individually.

I backed this anthology through a Kickstarter campaign several months ago, and it's been very exciting to see this all come together and arrive at my doorstep! These sci-fi short stories are all by Indigenous authors and feature main characters who are queer and/or Two Spirit. If you aren't familiar with Indigenous culture or the term Two Spirit, please know that you will be expected to do your own research before, during, and after reading. These authors are not going to do the heavy lifting fo ...more
