"All emotions are universal. We live, we dream, we strive, we die ... Where the stars rise? Stories that bind us together regardless where we come from or where we are going-on Earth or in space. Futuristic Istanbul. Kerala waters. Cebu jungles. Gyeongbok Palace. Post-apocalyptic Tokyo. Follow twenty-three science fiction and fantasy authors and their stories seen from an Asian perspective and envisioned through Asian eyes. Even beyond being Asian, the characters are diverse within themselves as they explore magic and science and deal with love, race, and politics. Immigrants dealing with racial tension and war camp internment. Orphans facing genocide or questioning the meaning of blood. Families struggling in aftermath of natural disasters or absence of technology. Individuals wrestling between ghostly pasts and uncertain future. Folks striving above class structures or finding a voice in history. But no one is perfect-each is unique, honest, real-a reflection of lives in profound and moving ways. Embrace them as you take on their journeys. And don't look back ..."--
