Nnedi Okorafor gets it on with

Nnedi Okorafor, author of "Zahara the Windseeker," "Who Fears Death" and "Akata Witch," has just had one of her short stories published on

Nnedi is an amazing writer of speculative fiction that uses African themes and is frequently set in Nigeria. The story is preceeded by an informative round-up of sci-fi and fantasy set in Africa. It includes the works of H. Rider Haggard, which I would not personally recommend because of his often questionable depictions of Africans, and it doesn't seem to include works by any actual Africans, but it's still a pretty useful list.

Two of my favorite things just got together and here is what they produced:

  1. I loved the short story, Nnedi does fantasy so naturally!

    And yeah I took notes from the editor's preamble, didn;t know there was such a wide body of work.
