Product description


." . . this collection is essential for anyone interested in the diverse and engaging possibilities of fantasy and science fiction."


." . . this fascinating collection addresses issues of immigration, dual cultures, and ethnic issues through genre devices such as ghosts, steampunk robots, and planetary exploration. SF readers looking to discover new voices will enjoy this volume that reflects the eclecticism of Asian culture."

--Library Journal

." . . there's a lot of good reading to be found in Where the Stars Rise."

--Locus (Gardner Dozois)

"This anthology was good, with the majority of the stories being either good or very good page-turners."


"A wealth of stories running the gamut from poignant to mindblowing, rewarding journeys both faraway and familiar."

--Aliette de Bodard, Nebula Award-winning author of the Dominion of the Fallen saga

"Where the Stars Rise is a hell of a lot of fun. Great writers, magnificent storytelling, and worlds I wanted to spend a lot more time in--no matter how dangerous they were. I had a blast reading it."

--Rob Boffard, author of the Outer Earth series (Tracer, Zero-G, Impact)

One story selected for The Best Science Fiction of the Year, Volume 3 (ed. by Neil Clarke, Night Shades Book, April 2018)

Anthologies in this series (Strangers Among Us, The Sum of Us, Where the Stars Rise) have been recommended by Publishers Weekly, Booklist (American Library Association), Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, School Library Journal, Locus, Foreword Reviews, and Quill & Quire.
