The New Voices of Science Fiction

edited by Hannu Rajaniemi and Jacob Weisman

Your future is bright! After all, your mother is a robot, your father has joined the alien hive-mind, and your dinner will be counterfeit 3D-printed steak. Even though your worker bots have staged a mutiny, and your tour guide speaks only in memes, you can always sell your native language if you need some extra cash.

In The New Voices of Science Fiction, you’ll find the rising stars of the last five years: Rebecca Roanhorse, Amal El-Mohtar, Alice Sola Kim, E. Lily Yu, Rich Larson, Vina Jie-Min Prasad, Sarah Pinsker, Darcie Little Badger, Nino Cipri, S. Qiouyi Lu, Kelly Robson, and more. These extraordinary stories have been hand-selected by cutting-edge and award-winning author Hannu Rajaniemi (The Quantum ThiefSummerland) and genre expert, World Fantasy Award winner, Jacob Weisman (InvadersThe Sword & Sorcery Anthology).

So go ahead, join the interstellar revolution. The new kids already hacked the AI.


“In the introduction to this superlative anthology, Weisman declares the future of science fiction resides in the sure hands of the authors of these 20 recent award-winning or award-nominated stories.”

Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“A stunning set of sf shorts. Highly recommended for all collections.”

Library Journal, Starred Review!

“A must-read for anyone interested in the latest and most exciting sf writing out there.”

Booklist, Starred Review

“Readers often turn to established writers whose work they’ve previously enjoyed for more of the same. That’s fine, but to add a little variety I also recommend supplementing that with stories by new authors. THE NEW VOICES OF SCIENCE FICTION, edited by Hannu Rajaniemi and Jacob Weisman (Tachyon), is the perfect anthology to do just that.”


“This is a killer collection, full of top-notch stories beautifully written and invested with much care, compassion and thought.”


“These writers demonstrate the breadth of concepts and worlds with which science fiction writers can create a delicious buffet of stories for readers to gorge themselves on and that, for emerging writers in the genre, there will always be plenty of room for stunning originality.”
