Zion’s Fiction: A Treasury of Israeli Speculative Fiction (Mandel Vilar, 9781942134527, September 2018)

Zion’s Fiction is not only an excellent collection of speculative fiction from Israel but also a book that makes us think anew about the real challenges the world must face in the future. . . . [It] opens our eyes to the creativity and literary invention happening beyond our borders and makes us long for more.”—World Literature Today, September 2018

Lagos Noir (Akashic Books, 9781617755231, June 2018)

“Covering one of the widest spectrums of genre-inspired stories, Chris Abani is as masterful as he is meticulous in his assembly of noir. . . . Lagos Noir is a colorful and harrowing vision preserving the distinct voice of each contributor contained within its pages. The collection carries a moving and self-contained quality while simultaneously sparking hope that the Noir series will eventually forge its way into further explorations of Africa.”—World Literature Today, September 2018

Rail (BOA Editions, 9781942683582, April 2018)

“Anybody who has stepped off the usual path will recognize the power of travel in facilitating introspection, and it is this recipe—let’s call it one part adventure, three parts reflection—that poet Kai Carlson-Wee nails so masterfully in his debut collection, Rail.”—Kenyon Review, August 2018

Havana Libre (Akashic Books, 9781617755835, December 2017)

“Arellano’s world of clinic doctors, hotel hustlers, secret police, and neighborhood spies is as rich and vibrant a place as I’ve come across in fiction in a long while. His style has something of Bolaño’s cynical, madcap energy, but with Graham Greene’s eye for the small absurdities in life, the same absurdities that, under the right (or wrong) circumstances, spin out into an international catastrophe.”—Literary Hub, August 17, 2018

After the Winter (Coffee House Press, 9781566895255, September 2018)

“What Nettel understands with such sensitivity are the contradictory desires we have to both live alone in our apartments, our self-made mausoleums, and to escape them, to leave them behind and seek out human connection.”—Arkansas International, August 24, 2018

Farmer Falgu Goes to the Market (Karadi Tales, 9788181903129, April 2018)

“Broad outlines and bold colors join a riot of expressive exclamations as exotic Indian sights, sounds, and smells sizzle, honk, bump, and dunk along the road with an optimistically determined Falgu and his oxen until they finally reach their destination, rumpled wares and all.”—Foreword Reviews, March/April 2018
