Collisions: Fictions of the Future

Experimental, genre-bending, lucid stories of the future from the inaugural LIMINAL Fiction Prize longlist.

What does the future hold? A tense dinner party is held amid an impending climate catastrophe. A father leases his backyard out to a cemetery. Activists plan an attack on ASIO drones in a shock-jock run government. A voyeur finds herself caught in time. Featuring both emerging and established writers of colour, this collection showcases some of the best work that Australian literature has to offer.

These stories are sites for collisions: against eurocentric ideals, against narrow concepts of excellence, against stagnant ideas of the world to come. But collisions also manifest in the way our lives come into contact with others, how our pasts shift against the present, and how our imaginations sit against our realities.

Collisions is necessary reading for the future of fiction, and the future of our shared world.
