Ecotones exist wherever different ecosystems make contact. Where forest meets field... where the land meets the sea... where swamp gives way to jungle... where the surface descends beneath the ground... these are borders across which different ways of life come into conflict, and sometimes cooperation.
But in speculative fiction we might envision other borders: where the mundane meets the fantastical. Where countries clash and cultures mix. Where technology is joined to flesh. Where the known meets the unknown. These are ecotones of the imagination — where anything could happen.
Featuring the work of Ken Liu, Lauren Beukes and Tobias S. Buckell, as well as eleven stories from members of SFFWorld.com's writing community, ECOTONES is a collection like no other — a point of contact between fantasy and science fiction with a timely environmental theme.
