This collection of short speculative stories is a real mixed bag. I listened to an audio version so I didn't have any idea what any story would be about, and cannot now connect specific titles and authors with the stories I really liked. I'm going to have to find a print version to point me in the direction of new interesting authors.
It seems the first several were oriented to juvenile males, but since I didn't have any other audio books on a long car ride I persisted. Happily the stories began to be interesting and creative.
It appears as if "Blackness" wasn't a requirement as much as being a minority author or subject. There was an interesting Malaysian steam punk tale, several thought-provoking tales set in the Middle East, a few in the Caribbean.
I highly recommend this to anyone willing to be a selective reader. ( )
