Reader Katia Fowler says, “Global Dystopias is shattering and marvelous. I am in awe. Thank you for ripping my heart out and cradling it at the same time.” Publishers Weekly writes, “[S]ome of the best contributions . . . include nuanced examinations of gender-based oppression. In Charlie Jane Anders’s astoundingly good ‘Don’t Press Charges and I Won’t Sue,’ the narrator is forced . . . into a body she doesn’t want and didn’t ask for. Maria Dahvana Headley’s ‘Memoirs of an Imaginary Country’ explores the connection between the colonization of women’s bodies and colonization of non-Western countries. Tananarive Due’s ‘The Reformatory’ reveals a single moment of horrific abuse in a young black boy’s . . . life. Maureen McHugh’s ‘Cannibal Acts’ and Nalo Hopkinson’s ‘Waving at Trains’ are excellent stories of viral apocalypses and their aftermath.”Buy Issue
