Black Cranes: Tales of Unquiet Women.

Co-edited by Lee Murray and Geneve Flynn

Almond-eyed celestial, the filial daughter, the perfect wife. Quiet, submissive, demure. In Black Cranes, Southeast Asian writers of horror both embrace and reject traditional roles in a unique collection of stories which dissect their experiences of “otherness,” be it in the colour of their skin, the angle of their cheekbones, the things they dare to write, or the places they have made for themselves in the world.

Black Cranes is a dark and intimate exploration of what it is to be a perpetual outsider.

With stories by Nadia Bulkin, Grace Chan, Rin Chupeco, Elaine Cuyegkeng, Geneve Flynn, Gabriela Lee, Rena Mason, Lee Murray, Angela Yuriko Smith, and Christina Sng.

Described as “an instant classic” by Nightmare Feed and “one of the best anthologies of 2020” by Pseudopod.
