Latin@ Rising is the first anthology of science fiction and fantasy written by Latinos/as living in the United States. The book gives an overview to the field of Latino/a speculative literature, showing the great variety of stories being told by Latino/a writers. Fifty years ago the Latin American "Boom" introduced magical realism to the world; Latin@ Rising is the literature that has risen from the explosion that gave us García Márquez, Jorge Amado, Carlos Fuentes and others. The 21st century writers and artists of Latin@ Rising help us to imagine a Latino/a past, present, and future which have not been whitewashed by mainstream perspectives. Contrary to the popular perception, Latino/a Literature is not just magical realism and social realist protest literature--it also contains much speculative fiction. By showing the actual breadth of genres being used by Latino/a authors, Latin@ Rising will help extend the boundaries of the Latino/a literature canon.  Authors included:Kathleen Alcalá Pablo Brescia Pedro Zagitt Sabrina Vourvoulias Daína Chaviano ADÁL Ana Castillo Ernest Hogan Junot Díaz Richie Narvaez Edmundo Paz-Soldán Steve Castro Alex Hernandez Carmen Maria Machado Giannina Braschi Carlos Hernandez Alejandra Sanchez Daniel José Older Carl Marcum Marcos Santiago Gonzalez
