Part of Comma’s ‘Futures Past’ series, Kurdistan + 100 is the first anthology of Kurdish speculative fiction ever published in English. Kurdistan + 100 poses a question to ten contemporary Kurdish writers: might the Kurds have a country to call their own by the year 2046 – exactly a century after the last glimmer of independence (the short-lived Kurdish Republic of Mahabad)? Or might the struggle for independence have taken new turns and new forms? Throughout the 20th century (and so far, the 21st), the Kurds have been betrayed, suppressed, stripped of their basic rights, and had their political aspirations crushed at every turn. Here, ten Kurdish authors (including several former political prisoners, and one currently serving a 183-year sentence for his views) imagine a freer future, one in which it is no longer effectively illegal to be a Kurd.
