I can think of several Asian-American writers who do YA fantasy, but what about in adult fantasy and science fiction?
I’d like to make an effort here. Maybe it’s a visibility issue and I don’t follow the right channels. I’d like to discover that there are more writers of Asian heritage that are published in English speaking markets than I believe. I put out a call on Twitter and here’s the initial list that came back, but I’d like your help too!
- THE GASLIGHT DOGS by Karin Lowachee – Canada
- SALT FISH GIRL by Larissa Lai – Canada
- THE BOOKS OF THE SUNDERED (series) by Michelle Sagara / Michelle West – Canada
- LEGENDS OF THE RED SUN (series) by Mark Charan Newton – UK
- DIRK AND STEELE (series) by Marjorie M. Liu – USA
- PSI CHANGLING (series) by Nalini Singh – New Zealand
- NORSE CODE by Greg Van Eekhout – USA
- OBSIDIAN AND BLOOD (series) by Aliette de Bodard – France
- GAMEWORLD (series) by Samit Basu – India
- RAMAYAMA (series) by Ashok Banker – India
- SHIVA TRIOLGY by Amish Tripathi – India
Science Fiction Novels
- THE LIVES OF TAO by Wesley Chu – USA
- HOW TO LIVE SAFELY IN A SCIENCE FICTIONAL UNIVERSE by Charles Yu – USA
I’d like your suggestions, but please hold off on self-published books for now (that may be another list). And thank you!
