Science fiction is my favorite fiction genre. Mix in some visionary fiction and have it be written by someone who sees the world through an anticapitalist lens, and you have the recipe for Octavia’s Brood; a collection of short stories written by an array of “organizers and activists.” adrienne maree brown—who I’ve been a huge fan of for a long time—said, in the outro: “Science fiction is the perfect ‘exploring ground,’ as it gives us the opportunity to play with different outcomes and strategies before we have to deal with the real-world costs.” The world is fucked and reading visionary sci-fi helps me imagine some ways that could go.

I don’t think the writing in this book is the best, most captivating (though some is), and I like short stories even less when they’re sci-fi (that shit needs time to build a world for us), but it was definitely worth the read. I’ve read a lot of books that have referenced it and have been wanting to read it since it came out in 2015.

My favorite stories were: The Token Superhero by David F Walker, Black Angel by Walidah Imarisha, The Long Memory by Morrigan Phillips, and Kafka’s Last Laugh by Vagabond. There were only one or two that I really didn’t like. Check it out. It may still be on sale at AK Press or, if you live local, borrow it from me.

This book was not really for me. It's written well and, as always, adrienne maree brown drops hella wisdom, but it didn't speak to me where my life is right now

Grievers was a good book, Maroons was even better. I can't wait for the third.
