Tripping the Tale Fantastic: Weird Fiction by Deaf and Hard of Hearing Writers by Christopher Jon Heuer
English | 2018 | Science Fiction | ePUB | 1.3 MB

From haunted Civil War battlefields to a severed ear discovered on a nightly run; from lab-grown dinosaurs to forest creatures that steal away children under the cover of night; from deadly bio-engineered fleas to a burning teenage desire for cybernetic amputations: Deaf and hard of hearing authors from around the world bring you this fun, though oftentimes disturbing, collection of short fiction.

So often the future we imagine is homogenous: everyone has the same baseline abilities and there is a presumption that all five senses are the norm. This collection has stories of people accessing new technologies, and people living in worlds where to hear is to be abnormal. There are stories that explore the imposition of language values on the Deaf community and the harm committed in the name of ‘help.’ And there are stories in which we get to experience how others communicate.

Contributors include Kris Ashton, John Lee Clark, Michael R. Collings, Willy Conley, Bobby Cox, Daniel Crosby, Marsha Graham, Kristen Harmon, Lilah Katcher, David Langford, Raymond Luczak, A. M. Matte, Brighid Meredith, Kristen Ringman, Maverick Smith, Tonya Marie Stremlau, Jacob Waring, Joanne Yee, and Kelsey M. Young.
