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!

Rosalind’s Siblings Table of Contents!

Since Frankenstein, science fiction’s relationship to science has been an uneasy one: at times embracing the idea of scientific progress as an unalloyed good, at others seeing it as a route into hardship and inevitable decline. But in a world of global warming and renewable energy, of greater connectivity and troll botnets, of medical advancements and antibiotic-resistant bacteria, what does science mean? And why is it still so often seen being done by cis white men in (cis) white coats?

Bogi Takács has selected 17 stories and 6 poems by writers from across the world showcasing a range of scientists, and a range of scientific disciplines and narratives, beyond the usual tropes. From a poetic life of Ynés Mexia to the tale of an investigation by a diverse group of biologists. From a prose poem from the perspective of an artificial intelligence to the story of the drive to improvement… and how far it can lead scientists. We’re delighted to announce the full table of contents of Rosalind’s Siblings, forthcoming from Galli Books this autumn, with a beautiful cover by Grace P. Fong!
