I was really into this book in the beginning, the set-up and characters were so interesting, and nothing like I had ever read before. I got stuck in the middle and gave up because I had a hard time following different characters' over the years, and since the story is told in short vignettes, i stopped caring about any of the characters. I am still giving it three stars since the concept and writing were good.

*glee* The steampunk alternate history of Belgium’s invasion of the Congo if the natives had known a lot more about steam technology. Air canoes! Mechanical bicycles!

Queer women, women being awesome.

Read everything she has written, there's lots.

I decided to read "New Suns" after it was announced to have won the Locus Award for Best Anthology. I've never been big on short stories, but I've been trying to branch out lately. And in part of that, I've been trying to ensure I read from new perspectives and new authors than I have before. So Nisi Shawl's collection was the perfect collection for me to dive into.

This anthology does its job of providing speculative fiction from a variety of backgrounds really well. Different cultural norms, mythologies, and aesthetics are all laid before the reader in an approachable manner, without sacrificing or white-washing their substance. I did a few times find myself having to pause in my reading to look up a phrase or word that I wasn't familiar with, but was glad to have been included as keeping these stories authentic to each author's background made them whole.

I in particular wanted to highlight the story "Burn the Ships" by Alberto Yáñez, which was my personal favorite of the anthology. It seamlessly blends the horror and shame of the holocaust and colonialism, as well as cultural/religious themes from Yáñez's backgrounds, into a very dark tale of the oppressed and oppressor.

The whole collection is mixed in humor, horror, and intriguing speculation. The book never really drags; while each story clearly has different pacing, they're organized in a way that the flow never becomes an issue. It really does have something for every reader, and I'm incredibly glad to have read it.
