An Invite to Eternity represents literary modes and genres including speculative fiction, weird fiction, dark horror or fantasy, science-eco-fiction, folk or environmental horror, the eerie and the uncanny, in order to find a common language to articulate our present challenge in the face of the most pressing problem humanity is facing: anthropogenic climate change.  The anthology includes fiction written originally in English, short fiction in translation, and also stories produced by a new generation of multi-lingual authors working in more than one language, and engaging with more than one culture.
