    'When conceiving of this issue, I found myself wanting to bite back at critics of futurism. Those who call it sentimental, puerile, unrealistic. A fairy tale. Wish fulfilment. Such an anti-utopian mindset is what, I would argue, inspired Jonathan Franzen to write in The New Yorker recently that we may as well accept defeat against the climate emergency. I see this anti-utopianism everywhere. In fact, I see it in myself.' (Eda Gunaydin  : Editorial introduction)

    y separately published work icon This All Come Back Now Mykaela Saunders (editor), St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 2022 23603716 2022 anthology short story science fiction fantasy

    'A world-first collection of blackfella speculative fiction from well-known and emerging First Nations writers. The first-ever anthology of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander speculative fiction – written, curated, edited and designed by blackfellas, for blackfellas and about blackfellas. In these stories, some writers are summoning ancestral spirits from the past, while others are looking straight down the barrel of potential futures, which always end up curving back around to hold us up from behind. Dazzling, imaginative and unsettling, This All Come Back Now centres and celebrates communities, cultures and country.' (Publication summary)
