The Innovative Worlds Bundle – Curated by Tenea D. Johnson

Innovation can mean the difference between progress and stagnation, wonder and woe, seeing the return of dim days or a new age of enlightenment. An innovative world is one where you can immerse yourself and learn something new, see a trope turned on its head, meet characters that will frequent the passages of your mind, navigating by the spark of newness they carry through the gloom.

Innovative worlds can shine as an example of what to be or provide respite from what, if only temporarily, is. Or they can make you appreciate what ain’t broke.

One could make a strong case that innovation and its possibilities are in short supply at the moment. But not here.

Come get yours.

Get your protagonists that find a way to a better world, your supernatural smooth talkers and soothsayers, your window into the humor of the fabulist, the horror of real life, the fantastical seams holding it all together. And multitudes more.

I like variety in my innovation and that’s apparent in this lineup — jumping into a life or a universe is to be done frequently and with abandon I say. The bundle offers a myriad of visions in its short stories, but those who enjoy the charms of longer forms will find them here too.

The authors of these 10 works include World Fantasy, Parallax, Lambda, Sturgeon, Nebula, Sense of Gender, Gaylactic Spectrum, and Duggins Prize for Outstanding Mid-Career Novelist Award winners. All have excelled at characterization, worldbuilding and voice to give us innovative words to immerse ourselves in, rediscover what we think we know anew and renew us.– Tenea D. Johnson
