[Diversicon] Asian American Speculative Literature

As we start the conversation regarding Asian American Speculative Literature, the Carl Brandon Society has previously suggested a number of great titles to consider in the discussion. Narrowing it down to writers from North, South and Central America, among the standouts we have are:

Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
Atomik Aztek by Sesshu Foster
Hopeful Monsters and The Kappa Child by Hiromi Goto
Salt Fish Girl by Larissa Lai
The Poet's Journey by Amirthi Mohanraj
Of Love and Other Monsters by Vandana Singh
And of course the work of William F. Wu.

There are many others who I'm probably missing on this first list, so by all means, as always, suggest away!
