Don't Touch That: An Anthology of Parenthood in SFF
Parents exploring ancient, curse-ridden caves with their children. Parents trying to give their kin enough personal space to grow their own intergalactic empires - and make their mistakes. Parents hunting the monsters that hide beneath kids' beds. Parents offering advice to the adventuring child who never takes it.
In February, author Jess Hernandez tweeted out how much fun it would be to contribute to an anthology that explored the theme of parenthood in science fiction and fantasy in the same style as Mike Chen's debut novel Here and Now and Then.
Yes, it would, Mike tweeted back, and thus was born Don't Touch That: An Anthology of Parenthood in Science Fiction and Fantasy, organized by SFF authors Mike Chen (of the aforementioned Here and Now and Then), K.A. Doore (the Chronicles of Ghadid Trilogy), and Keena Roberts (Wild Life) and, if funded, edited by Jaymee Goh (The Sea is Ours: Tales of Steampunk Southeast Asia and The WisCon Chronicles Vol. 11: Trials by Whiteness).
