Snaring New Suns is a collection of speculative writing that goes beyond the genres of science fiction and fantasy with writers from around the world who have a connection to Hawai’i and the Pacific.
“In the twentieth century, science fiction and fantasy were often derided as escapist, but from here in the twenty-first, it has become clear that speculative art can be a tool for helping us navigate our way toward better futures.”
In this challenged and challenging modern world, we need the upheaval that comes from imagination, speculation, and envisioning our traditions anew. And that is what this collection of speculative writing is about: writing into being new nets for snaring the sun. . . “The pieces we have collected here are imaginative, often haunting, and many are steeped in the stories and traditions of the Pacific.”
