Dillon speaks powerfully from her position as an indigenous teacher and scholar, and in doing so, provides a strong yet nuanced analysis of a rich variety of indigenous science fiction.
—Journal of the Fantastic in the Arts
Dillon's superb anthology, the first devoted to indigenous SF, highlights long-overlooked authors alongside better-known figures such as Nalo Hopkinson and Leslie Marmon Silko. Every piece is a perspective twister and a thought inducer built on solid storytelling from ancient and newer traditions, and the anthology will encourage readers to further investigate indigenous speculative works.
A highly compelling and outstanding anthology, which fills a long-standing gap in the science fiction criticism.
Dillon's anthology not only offers an innovative study of comparative literature but also delivers an excellent example of how to compose such a compilation for those who might follow her lead into this brave new world of Indigenous literary genre.

Don't read these because they're stories by Native American writers. Read them because they're damn good stories by damn good writers.
