Description

What are the adventures that lie beyond the end of our world? In a perfect world, how do we grow? In an imperfect world, how do we resist?

In this collection of stories, we showcase a variety of stories by Indigenous authors imagining different possible futures of our world, told through the lens of the 2SQ (Two-Spirit & queer) heroes in the lead roles.

You can expect stories of morally ambigious cyborg rats, civilizations overtaken by the promise of perfect virtual reality, tips for surviving the apocalypse, and survival after the end of the world.
