Synopsis: From Joe Monti's Afterword to Diverse Energies: "In 2009 a heated discussion on race in fantasy and science fiction was boiling up. This became known as RaceFail 09. ... There was a lot more heated discussion, largely on the blogosphere, about the portrayal of race in teen literature and its effects on the fantasy and science fiction community. Conflicts online tend to gravitate toward flame wars, and even though there were some very measured and smart responses being written, it was largely reactive. ... Yet when another incident arose from an ignorant essay by a prominent author, I was about to get online and rant, and instead called Toby Buckell and suggested we do something constructive and gather some of the writers we know and get them each to contribute a story to an anthology about a wonderful, blended, messed-up future not as a role model, but a touchstone. Having people of color/Caucasian/LGBT protagonists in stories by these writers is not a brick thrown at a window; it is the continuing paving of a path."
