FIRST UP, THIS:
Other Fiction Related Links:
On Cultural Appropriation - Mostly romance genre, YA gets nod.
Reading in Colour - Quotes Peggy Mackintosh's essay and an epic POC books reclist (okay, so it's mostly African authors and veryyyyyy little of other POC authors, but what I like about this list is that she gives recs for ALL genres and even non-fiction. That's not something I see everyday.)
And also, there's an excellent fundraising effort out there called A Story for Haiti wherein authors put up stories for free and you donate whatever you think the story you read/liked was worth to help with the Haitian earthquake.
I've skimmed through a large part of them and here are some of the ones I liked:
The Effluent Engine by N. K. Jemisin
Rocket Kumar by Samit Basu
What You Don't Know Can Still Hurt You by Aditya Bidikar
In the Halls of the Sky-Palace by Nancy Fulda
Most of the stories are written in English, but there's also some stories written in Portuguese as well.
Please do consider donating when you read a story you liked.
