While I was in Taiwan, I received a friendly note from McFarland along with with their Spring 2011 Catalog, which includes the cover and description for the collection that I co-edited with Masood Ashraf Raja and Swaralipi Nandi titled The Postnational Fantasy: Postcolonialism, Cosmopolitics, and Science Fiction. I think that McFarland chose a bitchin’ cover for our collection. Below, I have included the blurb, pricing, and ISBN information for the collection of first-class essays.
