Overview

Caribbean born novelist Tobias Buckell established himself as a gifted new voice in science fiction with his stunning first novel Crystal Rain. Now, in his first collection, Buckell demonstrates his strengths in the short form, offering readers a collection of stories that are compelling, smart, wonderfully imagined, and entertaining.

Tides from the New Worlds contains 19 stories that range from multicultural science fiction to magical realism, some in print for the first time.

“Buckell’s stories, culturally informed and layered, are driven by plot, rather than character or concept; Story tends to be centerpiece. He is this sense a little like a mellowed, more pragmatic, hipper version of Octavia Butler.” Strange Horizons

“In Tides from the New Worlds, Tobias Buckell does what the best SF/F writers do: tells stories that touch our minds with wonder and endow our hearts with perception. Reading this collection, for those of us culture-bound West or East, brings science fiction and fantasy to a fresh awakening. And for those of us who miss seeing ourselves in the fiction we so often read, it’s quite moving.” -Tor.com

    Ecclectic collection of well written stories

    I read around a lot and at this point it is hard to find stories in sci/fantasy that seem new to me. Mr. Buckell brings forth wild ideas that somehow work in every story. 'Her' is great, Pratchett levels of absurdity and wit. It is not all fun and games though, the first story and another about a woman who gives soldiers a childhood made me cry. In that awesome, I am so moved by this person's story sort of way.
