Forever Friday is an original meme to spotlight books I’m going to love forever.
LOVE BEYOND BODY, SPACE & TIME by Hope Nicholson is an Indigenous LGBT Sci-Fi anthology.
“Love Beyond, Body, Space, and Time” is a collection of indigenous science fiction and urban fantasy focusing on LGBT and two-spirit characters. These stories range from a transgender woman trying an experimental transition medication to young lovers separated through decades and meeting far in their own future. These are stories of machines and magic, love, and self-love.
This collection features prose stories by:
Cherie Dimaline “The Girl Who Grew a Galaxy,” “Red Rooms”
Gwen Benaway “Ceremonies for the Dead”
David Robertson “Betty: The Helen Betty Osborne Story,” Tales From Big Spirit series
Richard Van Camp “The Lesser Blessed,” “Three Feathers”
Mari Kurisato “Celia’s Song,” “Bent Box”
Nathan Adler “Wrist”
Daniel Heath Justice “The Way of Thorn and Thunder: The Kynship Chronicles”
Darcie Little Badger “Nkásht íí, The Sea Under Texas”
And an introduction by Niigaanwewidam James Sinclair “Manitowapow,” with a foreword by Grace Dillon “Walking the Clouds”.
Edited by Hope Nicholson “Moonshot,” “The Secret Loves of Geek Girls”
The first time I read this anthology, I cried. There are little to no books out there for Queer Indigenous people and this was the first book I ever read that featured a Two-Spirit character. I can’t put into words how important this anthology is and has been for me.
I recommend this to everyone who wants an AMAZING Queer anthology written by intensely creative Indigenous peoples.
