Speculative Masculinities Table of Contents!

Repeatedly, in recent years, we have been told masculinity is in crisis; that men don’t have models of masculinity to emulate; and that in speculative fiction in particular, men are marginalised and cast out. Of course, we don’ believe that, living under the patriarchy as we all must… but perhaps we can put masculinity into crisis, force it to re-evaluate itself, with stories about alternative models of masculinity! That’s what this anthology intends to do.

Brought to you by a powerhouse editorial team including the brilliant Ronan Sadler and Jay Wolf for fiction, the fabulous Brandon O’Brien finding poetry, and D Franklin looking through nonfiction. This anthology features stories as varied as faecal fortune-telling to the most fabulous superhero squad in all the universes. A creation poem translated from Filipino alongside musings on travels into space. Essays about the Rock and about queer tropes. We’re delighted to announce the full table of contents of Speculative Masculinities, forthcoming this Autumn from Galli Books, with a stunning cover by Rhiannon Rasmussen-Silverstein!
