International Links

Time for some Linkage! Plus, it's International Linkage, which makes it more delicious:

  • Science Fiction in India. Does what it says on the tin. Posts of note so far include answers to a questionaire about the cultural significance of sf--Arvid's answers are interestingly different from those on, say, Nethspace. Thanks to Cheryl Morgan for the link.
  • Niall Harrison reviews short fiction, including some short fiction from China published by the Guardian.
  • The Philippine Speculative Fiction Sampler. An online short fiction anthology, in English, by Philippine writers. I've only just started reading this, and will eventually review it, but I wanted to make sure news spreads about this. Thanks to SFSignal for the link.
  • Via just about everywhere, Book View Cafe is a new online short fiction venue. It is publishing at least a story a day by women authors, including Ursula K. Le Guin, Jennifer Stevenson and Vonda McIntyre. Although I'm inundated by short fiction these days, this will probably be a good spot for people looking for something new every day.
  • Over at Tor.com, Brian Slattery reviews a new anthology: Cosmos Latinos: An Anthology of Science Fiction from Latin America and Spain. Exactly the sort of thing we need to see more of. Thanks to Duncan Lawie!

Hi Karen,

I don't know whether you've seen this discussion (mostly) on Latin American SF

Cheers,
Duncan.

Duncan - No I hadn't seen that. Thanks for the link! I've added it to the post and I've added "Cosmos Latinos" to my reading list.

Brian Slattery reviews a new anthology: Cosmos Latinos

A minor note: Cosmos Latinos isn't a new anthology; it came out five years ago.
