Synopsis

An expedition to an alien planet; Lenin rising from the dead; a superhero so secret he does not exist. In The Apex Book of World SF 2, World Fantasy Award-winning editor Lavie Tidhar brings together a unique collection of stories from around the world: quiet horror from Cuba and Australia, surrealist fantasy from Russia, epic fantasy from Poland, near-future tales from Mexico and Finland, and cyberpunk from South Africa. In this anthology, one gets a glimpse of the complex and fascinating world of genre fiction—from all over our world.

Featuring work from noted international authors such as Will Elliot, Hannu Rajaniemi, Shweta Narayan, Lauren Beukes, Ekaterina Sedia, Nnedi Okorafor, and Andrzej Sapkowski.
