Description

There's a delicate balance between mental health and mental illness...

Who are the STRANGERS AMONG US?
We are your fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, sons and daughters, friends and lovers. We staff your stores, cross your streets, and study in your schools, invisible among you. We are your outcasts and underdogs, and often, your unsung heroes.

Nineteen science fiction and fantasy authors tackle the division between mental health and mental illness; how the interplay between our minds' quirks and the diverse societies and cultures we live in can set us apart, or must be concealed, or become unlikely strengths.

We find troubles with Irish fay, a North Korean cosmonaut's fear of flying, an aging maid dealing with politics of revenge, a mute boy and an army of darkness, a sister reaching out at the edge of a black hole, the dog and the sleepwalker, and many more.

After all, what harm can be done...

Praise for Strangers Among Us:
"Strangers Among Us... is important, shining a much-needed spotlight on issues that get far too little attention. A wonderful anthology, one of the major SF&F books of the year. Bravo!"
-- Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Quantum Night

"This is a unique collection that should attract readers of all genres.
--Foreword Reviews

"The stories... are as varied in tone and approach as their authors. The power of the collection derives from this variety; while each story can be read in isolation, the assemblage of outsiders feels, on a whole, exultant. There is, indeed, strength in numbers, when each individual is accorded space and respect."
--Quill & Quire

"Mental illness is an exciting theme for an anthology, leaving plenty of room for variety."
-- Library Journal

Recommended in Kirkus Reviews as one of "The August 2016 Science Fiction and Fantasy Books You'll Want to Read."

"... readers who have mental illnesses may find themselves somewhere in these pages and as a result may no longer feel so alone or isolated."
--School Library Journal

*** 2017 Aurora (Canadian SF&F) Award Winner *** *** 2017 Alberta Book Publishers Award Winner (Speculative Fiction Book of the Year) *** *** 2016 Foreword INDIES Finalist (Anthologies) *** *** One honorable mention in The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy 2017 (ed. by John Joseph Adams & Charles Yu) *** *** Six honorable mention in The Year's Best Science Fiction: Thirty-Fourth Annual Collection (ed. by Gardner Dozois) ***

Recommended by Kirkus Reviews, Library Journal, School Library Journal, Locus, Foreword Reviews, and Quill & Quire.
