Children of a Different Sky, edited by Alma Alexander

SF&F with a topical flair,

Children of a Different Sky

Kos Books, 2017, 188 pages

A themed anthology concerned with issues around migrants (immigrants, refugees) and their difficult existence. Twelve luminous stories (from authors like Seanan McGuire, Marie Brennan, Brenda Cooper, Pat McEwen, Aliette de Bodard - as well as some writers whose very first published story appears in this collection) and two heartbreaking poems by Jane Yolen make up this charity anthology the profits from which are going directly to two organizations working with migrant populations most directly in need of assistance.

Short stories about immigrants and refugees, a mixed bag of moralizing and light fantasy.
