About The Event

About the event:

Collisions: Fictions of the Future, a LIMINAL Anthology features emerging and established Indigenous writers and writers of colour, longlisted for the inaugural LIMINAL Fiction Prize 2019. The Prize – the first of its kind in Australia – sought fiction loosely themed around ‘the future’ and was judged by Julie Koh, Evelyn Araluen and Brian Castro. The resulting collection of genre-defying stories is essential reading for those invested in the future of fiction and the future of our shared world.

Three of the featured writers, Mykaela Saunders, Claire Cao and Naima Ibrahim will appear in-conversation with Peter Polites.

Event tickets are FREE. 

You can also select an Event+Book combo ticket for $29.99 and opt to have your copies shipped to you anywhere in Australia for free!

This event will take place on Zoom. The Zoom meeting details form part of your ticket, emailed to you after registration.

About the book:

 ‘This exceptional collection is by parts insightful, hopeful, disquieting, provoking and deeply, quietly moving – but mainly it’s a dazzling display of literary talent. We are honoured to be partnering with the LIMINAL team to showcase these remarkable stories.’                                                                                                                                   Pantera Publisher Lex Hirs

A tense dinner party is held amid an impending climate catastrophe. A father leases his backyard out to a cemetery. Activists plan an attack on ASIO drones in a shock-jock run government. A voyeur finds herself caught in time. These stories are sites for collisions: against eurocentric ideals, against narrow concepts of excellence, against stagnant ideas of the world to come. Collisions features authors including Claire G. Coleman, Elizabeth Flux, Bobuq Sayed, Mykaela Saunders, Eda Günaydın, Naima Ibrahim and the 2019 prize-winner, Bryant Apolonio. 

Editor Leah Jing McIntosh said,I’m so thrilled to be publishing Collisions with Pantera Press. It feels strange to be making anything in 2020, but as we contemplate
