Satellites: a science fiction anthology is a collection of eleven disconnected stories, linked only by a shared premise. Featuring a roster of local and international talent, the writers and artists respond to the demand for unity in the face of tragedy across a range of genres from comedy to horror. Exploring loss and letting go, the importance of our history – the good and the bad – and the need for community … these themes and more become crucial touchpoints for characters, and creators, navigating the path toward an uncertain future.
