Today we continue the premieres at #NTM2017 with two short stories excerpted
from the award-winning anthology of science fiction written by women in Spanish,
Spanish Women of Wonder (Palabristas, 2015) edited by Cristina Jurado and Leticia Lara. The Infestation by Felicidad Martínez presents a humorous and thrilling military space opera involving evolved plants. Techt by Sofía Rhei showcases a semiotic dystopia with a touch of cyberpunk, recalling novels such as Fahrenheit 451 or 1984. The translator, Sue Burke, does a wonderful job of capturing these two distinct voices. We hope you’ll agree and you’ll check out this mesmerizing collection.
