An Anthology of Sri Lankan Speculative Fiction

And while we’re talking about book projects and presses, I’ll note here that I’m planning to publish an anthology of Sri Lankan speculative fiction in 2021. I haven’t put together a call yet, and there are fair number of details to be worked out, but I’m excited to bring together homeland and diaspora authors in a collection that showcases our best work.

I’ve already confirmed a story of Yudhanjaya Wijeratne’s for inclusion (which reminds me, I have to go pick up a copy of his “The Salvage Crew”ASAP, looking forward to sinking into it over the holidays), and I’m hoping to secure stories from a host of other fine authors.

I always wanted Serendib Press to publish people other than myself, and I think I’m finally in a position to start moving forward with that. Really pleased that our first project along those lines will be a Sri Lankan one; it just feels so appropriate. 🙂

Now I just need a title. Dammit. (Suggestions welcome.)

(And if you’re a Sri Lankan speculative fiction author, please drop me a note at mohanraj@mamohanraj.com — I want to be sure you get a copy of the call for submissions when it’s ready.)
