The Postnational Fantasy–Available to Preorder

Just wanted to share that The Postnational Fantasy: Postcolonialism, Cosmopolitics and Science Fiction, edited by Masood Raja, Jason W. Ellis, and Swaralipi Nandi is now available to preorder through

The 12 original essays in The Postnational Fantasy: Postcolonialism, Cosmopolitics, and Science Fiction consider the relationship between the fantastic in novels, movies, and video games, and its real world counterparts in debates about nationalism, globalization, and cosmopolitanism. Instead of theorizing science fiction and fantasy against postcolonial theories, this volume attempts to locate their correspondences through the local and global, nation and transnational capital. This anthology charts a new discursive space where postcolonial theory and science fiction and fantasy studies work cooperatively to expand our understanding of the fantastic while simultaneously extending the scope of the postcolonial canon.
