Zweimal packende trans*feministische Science Fiction

Margins and Murmurations: Während die trans Frau Ash mit einer Freundin in der Sicherheit des Waldes vor dem Zugriff des totalitären Staates lebt, formiert sich in der Stadt Widerstand. Als das Militär schließlich Waldsiedlungen angreift und ein Verletzter sich zu Ash und ihrer Freundin flüchtet, werden diese mit ihrer Vergangenheit konfrontiert; es zieht sie zurück in die Stadt, an der Spitze des (queeren) Widerstands.

Conserve and Control: Geschichte über ein post-revolutionäres, queer-positives, ökologisches, kapitalistisches Gesellschaftssystem mit trans und nicht-binären Hauptfiguren. In einer vermeintlich
idyllischen Welt formiert sich eine Widerstandsbewegung gegen die Ausbeutung der Arbeiter:innen ...

Margins and Murmurations: This is the story of Ash, a trans woman and healer living in a corner of Europe controlled by a militarized state. Amidst the economic crash of the 2020s, this land, once a hub of diversity, saw the rise of a state-imposed monoculture of gender, sexuality, ability and race. Those that didn’t fit, known as the divergents, were imprisoned, expelled or worse. Ash and her best friend Pinar long ago escaped the City, left behind their days of fighting State oppression, and are eking out a calmer life in the forest, ravaged by the effects of climate change. One day, Jason, a resistance fighter, arrives abruptly into their life, reigniting personal and political drives and they find themselves drawn back into the fight. Joining trans and queer organisers, sex workers and other members of a hidden underclass, they risk everything to return to the City and face their oppressors. In this fight for dignity, self-determination and their survival, Ash’s ability to transcend time, a trait that until now she has considered her curse, turns out to be a more powerful weapon than anyone could have imagined.

Conserve and Control is written from the margins. Characters who are non-binary, working class, disabled and trans take central place as we are transported to a queer and green paradise that, like all utopias, is not to be trusted. Time has moved on and the City is no longer a place where queer folk live in fear or face expulsion. The forest, once burned to flush out resistance fighters, is now a protected nature reserve. In Espera, there are trans politicians and queer business leaders and the streets are lined with permaculture gardens. But the riches of a green lifestyle are not for everyone. Growing up in a poverty-stricken neighbourhood with his refugee family, Aq works as a security officer for the Union. He works too hard and sleeps too little. Until he meets Carl Kingson, a businessman made rich by conservation. As Aq quickly learns, Kingson has a fetish for servitude and if it involves money, so much the better. Outside the city, Teal, a trans woman, and Cyan, her non-binary research partner, find themselves on the front line as the forest is threatened yet again by a new wave of eco-developments. Teal dreams of the days of Ash and Pinar, the celebrated heroines of the Uprising, and wonders if the stories of Ash’s journeys through time might be more than just legend. But living in the shadow of the great reserve fence and its army of guards, Teal and Cyan are closer to resistance than they could possibly know.
