Overview

In 1514 Hungary, peasants who rose up against the nobility rise again – from the grave. In 1633 Al-Shouf, a mother keeps demons at bay with the combined power of grief and music. In 1775 Paris, as social tensions come to a boil, a courtesan tries to save the woman she loves. In 1838 Georgia, a pregnant woman's desperate escape from slavery comes with a terrible price. In 1900 Ilocos Norte, a forest spirit helps a young girl defend her land from American occupiers.

Now 27 of today's finest authors – including Tananarive Due, Sofia Samatar, Ken Liu, Victor LaValle, Nnedi Okorafor, and Sabrina Vourvoulias – reveal the people whose lives have been pushed to the margins of history.

Editorial Reviews

"An absolutely unprecedented anthology, dazzling in range and scope, beauty and strength. A success in every sense."
http://www.seananmcguire.com/ - Seanan McGuire
"Sharp, brilliant, and curated so well that it’s like walking into a museum of the mind, this is a collection everyone should read."
http://www.publishersweekly.com/978-0991392100 - Publishers Weekly
Fox and Older have taken a grand task upon themselves, and the results are laudable.
http://reviews.futurefire.net/2014/04/fox-older-long-hidden.html - Future Fire
This book’s existence proves a couple things: that there are both writers and consumers for a book with a message of resistance and social justice, and that such a project can be an absolute joy to read. Long Hidden is, in fact, one of the strongest speculative fiction anthologies I’ve read.
http://www.innsmouthfreepress.com/blog/review-long-hidden/ - Innsmouth Free Press
Rather than coming off as a Special More Diverse Edition of historical fantasy, it reads well enough – particularly in the very strong first half – that it makes mainstream historical fantasy feel poorer by comparison. Long Hidden shows us the richness of setting and character that is available to us if we make use of all of history, not just the clichéd parts. So, why aren’t the rest of us using it?
