Don't Touch That!

A Sci-Fi and Fantasy Parenting Anthology
An anthology of stories edited by

Parenting is often referred to as life's greatest adventure -- but what happens when parenting happens during adventures across time, space, and magic?

While popular stories have often included parents in their plots, few are actually about the act of parenting: the joy, the grief, the anxiety, and the love that comes hand in hand with the moment-to-moment challenges of raising a child...until now.

Don't Touch That! is an anthology of stories about parents and parenting, from what to do when a wizard convinces your child to go on adventure, to the particular grief of your adult child choosing to set sail on a colony-ship, to the ways parenting intrudes even when you're summoning demons, and much more.

Featuring bestselling and award-winning voices such as Kate Elliot, Mark Oshiro, Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki, and many more,
Don't Touch That! brings the one-of-a-kind journey of parenting to the world of science fiction and fantasy.
