The speculative is a space in fiction where the unexpected and impossible can creep in. It can encompass whimsical magical realism, satirical dystopia, alternate histories and fantasy grounded in the quotidian.
These recent collections of short stories all deal in the speculative fiction realm but vary in approach and tone. Some are pure dread and paranoia, while others are full of sly humor. Some are dreamy and some horrific. Some draw from folk and fairy lore and some from the brutality of the modern world.
