We’re immensely pleased to be able to deliver a special end-of-year issue of such quality. Characters of Color are underrepresented in speculative fiction. We knew a year ago, when we were releasing our LGBTQ issue, that this would be the theme for our second special issue.

Please enjoy the issue for free on the website, and let us – and the contributors – know what you think. Leave a comment or two telling the contributors you appreciate their work. Tell people about the issue: help us show that there’s plenty of room for more Characters of Color in SFF- not just in themed issues but all the time!

And help us to continue producing this work: please purchase this issue (print & ebook) to support Crossed Genres!
