Book Smugglers Publishing revealed the cover art for Speculative Fiction 2014 today, and it’s wonderful! The series has always had a lot of fun with its covers, but I think this cover, designed by Kenda Montgomery, is my favourite so far.
About the Collection
What exactly is fanfiction?
How are women “destroying” science fiction?
Why are we Sansa Stark?
Why is Nick Fury the Tyranny of Evil Men?
The Internet has the answers. Speculative Fiction 2014 collects over fifty of the best reviews, essays and media commentary from all facets of SFF. From insightful deconstruction of major blockbuster films, to considered arguments for diversity and inclusivity in science fiction and fantasy, this edition highlights many of the most complex, fraught, and important events in speculative fiction fandom from 2014.
