Samenvatting

How to Live on Other Planets: A Handbook for Aspiring Aliens explores the immigrant experience in a science fiction setting, with exciting fiction and poetry from some of the genre's best writers.


In these pages, you'll find Sturgeon winner Sarah Pinsker's robot grandmother, James Tiptree, Jr., Award winner Nisi Shawl's prison planet and Nebula, Hugo, and World Fantasy Award winner Ken Liu's space- and time-spanning story of different kinds of ghosts. You'll find Bryan Thao Worra's Cthulhic poetry, and Pinckney Benedict's sad, whimsical tale of genocide. You'll travel to Frankfurt, to the moon, to Mars, to the underworld, to unnamed alien planets, under the ocean, through clusters of asteroids. You'll land on the fourth planet from the star Deneb, and an alternate universe version of Earth, and a world of Jesuses.


This is not a textbook. You will not find here polemics on immigration policy or colonialism. The most compelling fiction articulates the unsaid, the unbearable, and the incomprehensible; these stories say things about the immigration experience that a lecture never could. The purpose of this book is, first and foremost, to entertain the casual and the sophisticated reader, but its genesis is a response to the question: Who do we become when we live with the unfamiliar?
