Description

From the award-winning series comes the highly anticipated anthology of hopeful stories centering on: "What is a life well-lived? What decisions will you make to have a meaningful life? What kind of stories will you leave behind?"

Recommended by Publishers Weekly, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, Booklist, and Foreword Reviews (starred review).

Travel with twenty-three speculative fiction authors through the seasons of life to capture the memories, identities, and moments of stepping through the portal of change, as they cope with their own journeys of growing older.

From the moment of birth, through each threshold of our lives, to the moment we take our last breath, we age. Some of us leap into a hopeful future, some cling to the knowns of our former selves, some wander obliviously through the minefields and poppies of change. Something is lost, something is gained in each season. Things forgotten, things remembered.

A child redefines identity and belonging in post-Soviet Hungary. A girl blossoming to adult awareness exchanges life for death in rural Canada. A college student chooses between the magic of ancient spirits and the magic of daily happiness in modern Japan. In futuristic India, a mother finds joy in the balance between family and career. Under the Andalusian sun, a mathematician consults his older self in affairs of love. In alternate Tanzania, a husband and wife discover wisdom in memory loss. A robot eases an old man's grief, and a grandmother opens her heart when she listens to her child. And many more hopeful stories.

Featuring Original Stories by Maurice Broaddus, Vanessa Cardui, C.J. Cheung, Joyce Chng, Eric Choi, S.B. Divya, Alan Dean Foster, Bev Geddes, Maria Haskins, Tyler Keevil, Rich Larson, Karin Lowachee, Brent Nichols, Heather Osborne, Y.M. Pang, Karina Sumner-Smith, Amanda Sun, Patrick Swenson, Bogi Takács, Hayden Trenholm, Liz Westbrook-Trenholm, Jane Yolen, and Alvaro Zinos-Amaro.

Praise for Seasons Between Us
"Featuring a diverse range of protagonists and a wide variety of genre and voice, this anthology nevertheless forms a cohesive whole, united by deep thought, emotional truth, and a hopeful tone. Speculative fiction fans will find it well worth searching out." -- Publishers Weekly

"VERDICT: This collection is at turns haunting, yearning, and hopeful. An excellent volume of varied voices, both familiar and new." -- Library Journal

"Through soft and hard science fiction, magical realism, folklore, horror, high fantasy, and alternate history, the 20 stories and two poems tackle aging, loss, change, and adaptation. Like the authors and characters, the settings are diverse... Fans of speculative fiction are well served." -- Kirkus Reviews

"The dazzling speculative fiction anthology Seasons Between Us features a range of distinct and powerful voices. By stretching the boundaries of what is and what might be, the stories in Seasons Between Us are compelling in addressing choice, identity, and meaning." -- Foreword Reviews(starred review)

"A thought-provoking collection of short works. The subtitle clearly labels the contents while not fully preparing the reader for the depth of emotion and vulnerability found within." -- Booklist (American Library Association)
