...and other disasters

...and other disasters

"You want something sharp? You want something echoing, haunting?

Something that demands your careful thought, your lingering attention?

Something that suggests a larger whole, pieces that jut into one another, sing over each other, harmonize and jangle?

You want this."

. . . and other disasters, the smart and moving collection of short fiction and poetry from acclaimed author Malka Older, examines otherness, identity and compassion across a spectrum of possible existence.

In stories about an AI built for empathy, a corps of fighting midwives traveling to a new planet, and a young anthropologist who returns to study the cultures of a dying Earth, Older's characters grapple with what it means to belong and be othered, to cling to the past and face the future, all while navigating a precarious world, riddled with natural and man-made disasters.
