Current theme (February 2014):
18: Music (Submissions: February 1-28. Publication: June 2014)
GUEST EDITOR: Daniel José Older
From the afrofuturisitic jams of Parliament Funkadelic and Janelle Monáe to the conjure songs of Andrea Hairston’s Redwood and Wildfire, music and speculative fiction have plenty to say to each other. How can rhythm and melody interact on an even deeper level with our literature of the fantastic? What lost histories of music and music-makers can be unearthed through critical reimaginings? What will music be like after the zombie/ werewolf/ volcano/ nuclear apocalypse that everyone’s always talking about? For this issue of Crossed Genres we will be exploring the power of music within speculative fiction.
