    Overview

    Rudyard Kipling's Just So Stories was one of the first true children's books in the English language, a timeless classic that continues to delight readers to this day. Beautiful, evocative and playful, the stories of How the Whale Got His Throat or How the First Letter Was Written paint a world of magic and wonder.

    It's also deeply rooted in British colonialism. Kipling saw the Empire as a benign, civilising force, in a way that's troubling to modern readers. Not So Stories attempts to redress the balance, bringing together new and established writers of colour from around the world to take the Just So Stories back, to interrogate, challenge and celebrate their legacy.

    Including stories by Adiwijaya Iskandar, Joseph E. Cole, Raymond Gates, Stewart Hotston, Zina Hutton, Georgina Kamsika, Cassandra Khaw, Paul Krueger, Tauriq Moosa, Jeannette Ng, Ali Nouraei, Wayne Santos and Zedeck Siew, illustrations by Woodrow Phoenix and an introduction by Nikesh Shukla.

    About the Author

    Joseph Elliott-Coleman has been writing and telling stories since he was a child, with science fiction being his wheelhouse. Enduring and overcoming countless barriers, his work first saw print in the Not So Stories anthology. He lives in Croydon, London.

    Back when they were a child, Zina Hutton once jumped out of a window to escape dance class in the Virgin Islands. Now they're a speculative fiction writer who tends to leap headfirst into new stories and worlds the second that inspiration strikes. Zina lives in hot and humid South Florida where they're never far away from a notebook and/or an iguana. Zina currently works as a freelance editor and writer with publication credits in Teen Vogue, Fireside Fiction, The Mary Sue, Strange Horizons, ComicsAlliance, Polygon and The Verge. You can find the majority of their work at their digital arts and culture publication Stitch's Media Mix and on Twitter as @stitchmediamix

    Cassandra Khaw writes many things. Mostly these days, she writes horror and video games and occasional flirtations with chick-lit. Her work can be found in venues like Clarkesworld, Fireside Fiction, Uncanny, Lightspeed, Nightmare, and more. A Song for Quiet was her latest novella from Tor.com, a piece of Lovecraftian Southern Gothic that she worries will confuse those who purchased Bearly a Lady, her frothy paranormal romantic comedy.

    David Thomas Moore is the Fiction Commissioning Editor at Rebellion Publishing, and the editor of Holmesian alternate-universe anthology Two Hundred and Twenty-One Baker Streets, Shakespearean shared-world Monstrous Little Voices, Stokerian pseudohistory Dracula: Rise of the Beast and Kiplingesque anti-colonial anthology Not So Stories. Australian by birth, he lives in Reading, England with his wife and daughter.
