Widely anthologized short story writer Daniel A. Olivas (How to Date a Flying Mexican) incorporates Chicano and Mexican culture into a new collection that ventures from magical realism to fables to dystopia and beyond. Adam Soto’s Concerning Those Who Have Fallen Asleep collects ghost stories of all kinds—literal and metaphorical—and tells of the hauntings we visit on ourselves and others. Leticia Urieta combines poetry and speculative fiction in Las Criaturas to tell stories of women reclaiming their power while embracing the monstrousness and beauty of their femininity.
