Review: Tentacle by Rita Indiana, transl. by Achy Obejas


I have a new review in Strange HorizonsTentacle by Rita Indiana, translated by Achy Obejas – a Dominican short novel or novella featuring dystopia, magic, climate politics, post-colonial issues, time-travel, LGBTQA+ themes, tons of references to art, music and pop culture, prophecies and portals, a sacred anemone, orisha described along the lines of Lovecraftian Great Old Ones, and a Nietzschean endboss of a metaphorical monster. Recommend.
