This exciting and groundbreaking fiction anthology showcases a number of new and emerging 2SQ (Two-Spirit and queer Indigenous) writers from across Turtle Island. These visionary authors show how queer Indigenous communities can bloom and thrive through utopian narratives that detail the vivacity and strength of 2SQness throughout its plight in the maw of settler colonialism’s histories.

Here, readers will discover bio-engineered AI rats, transplanted trees in space, the rise of a 2SQ resistance camp, a primer on how to survive Indigiqueerly, virtual reality applications, motherships at sea, and the very bending of space-time continuums queered through NDN time. Love after the End demonstrates the imaginatively queer Two-Spirit futurisms we have all been dreaming of since 1492.

Contributors include Darcie Little Badger, Mari Kurisato, Kai Minosh Pyle, David Alexander Robertson, and jaye simpson.

Review of 'Love after the End' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I have not read a lot of fiction over the past years, mostly sticking to non-fiction that often speaks of the harsh reality that have been and that we are living through. This collection was my introduction into speculative fiction and it was amazing! All of the worldviews, ways of being and other aspects detailed in these stories were very refreshing. I look forward to revisiting some of these stories later on and hope that they continue to dismantle the colonized ideals that have confined my imaginary for most of my life.
