This All Come Back Now

Edited by Mykaela Saunders     Recommended by    

The first-ever anthology of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander speculative fiction – written, curated, edited and designed by blackfellas, for blackfellas and about blackfellas. In these stories, ‘this all come back’: all those things that have been taken from us, that we collectively mourn the loss of, or attempt to recover and revive, as well as those that we thought we’d gotten rid of, that are always returning to haunt and hound us.

Some writers summon ancestral spirits from the past, while others look straight down the barrel of potential futures, which always end up curving back around to hold us from behind. Dazzling, imaginative and unsettling, This All Come Back Now centres and celebrates communities and culture. It’s a love letter to kin and country, to memory and future-thinking.

‘In This All Come Back Now, Saunders commits a radical act of subversion, and intellectual sovereignty by transforming a genre that has defined Western attitudes towards race, colonialism, and technology into a vehicle of First Nations continuance, resilience, and resistance.’ – Jeanine Leane

‘Blackfullas invented speculative fiction and this is the first time that the work of established and emerging Blak writers working in speculative fiction has been brought together in an anthology.’ – Jack Latimore, The Age
