Sofia Samatar, “Walkdog”

Tags: , ,

Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and FantasyThis morning I’m very happy to write that we have something new on the site: a story, “Walkdog” by Sofia Samatar. You may know Sofia from her fabulous (yes, I am biased) debut novel A Stranger in Olondria or from her knock out short stories such as “Honey Bear” in Clarkesworld or “How to Get Back to the Forest” in Lightspeed.

“Walkdog” comes from Kaleidoscope: Diverse YA Science Fiction and Fantasy, published by the excellent people at Twelfth Planet Press. The book features new stories from Garth Nix, William Alexander, Karen Healey, E. C. Myers, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Ken Liu, Vylar Kaftan, Sean Williams, Amal El-Mohtar, Jim C. Hines, Faith Mudge, John Chu, Alena McNamara, Tim Susman, Gabriela Lee, Dirk Flinthart, Holly Kench, Sean Eads, and Shveta Thakrar.

I’ve been dipping into Kaleidoscope ever since Shveta gave my wife a copy at Readercon (thanks Shveta!) and it’s a very good, wide-ranging anthology.

Not sure if it’s your thing? Read “Walkdog” (ouch! fabulous story) or go to Strange Horizons and read “The Truth About Owls” by Amal El-Mohtar (podcast).

Twelfth Planet are smart and they’re building a great list. Read “Walkdog“, pick up in Kaleidoscope, and get onboard.
