Table of Contents: INVADERS Edited by Jacob Weisman

In July 2016, Tachyon will release Invaders edited by Jacob Weisman. Check out the book and the table of contents!

About the book:

The invasion of the future has begun.

Literary legends including Stephen Millhauser, Junot Diáz, Amiri Baraka, and Katharine Dunn have attacked the borders of the every day. Like time traveling mad-scientists, they have concocted outrageous creations from the future. They have seized upon tales of technology gone wrong and mandated that pulp fiction must finally grow up.

In these wildly-speculative stories you will discover the company that controls the world from an alley in Greenwich Village. You’ll find nanotechnology that returns memories to the residents of a nursing home. You’ll rally an avian-like alien to become a mascot for a Major League Baseball team.

The Invaders are here. But did science fiction colonize them first?
