So lengthy Been Dreaming: Postcolonial technology Fiction & Fantasy is an anthology of unique new tales through prime African, Asian, South Asian and Aboriginal authors, in addition to North American and British writers of color.
Stories of imagined futures abound in Western writing. author and editor Nalo Hopkinson notes that the technology fiction/fantasy style “speaks loads concerning the adventure of being alienated yet includes so little writing through alienated humans themselves.” It’s an oversight that Hopkinson and Mehan goal to right with this anthology.

The wealth of postcolonial literature has integrated many that have written insightfully approximately their pasts and offers. With So lengthy Been Dreaming they creatively deal with their futures.
