Profile Information

About Me:
I am the author of the Imaro novels, which are more fantasy than science fiction, and also a new novel about an African Amazon named Dossouye, as well as several short stories published in anthologies.

My literary life, which goes back to the early 1970s, has had a lot of ups and downs. I'm now coming out of a down, and movin' on up.

I look forward to interacting with other people who are interested in the black perspective on science fiction and fantasy.

DAMBALLA IS IN THE HOUSE!

Posted on June 18, 2011 at 1:54pm 5 Comments

 The heyday of the pulp magazines was before my time. I was born during the dying days of that era, and by the time I was old enough to read and appreciate the fiction those magazines published, they were long gone -- in spirit, at least. But I did delve heavily into paperback books, which are the…

I'M BACK

Posted on November 21, 2009 at 1:29pm 3 Comments

I've been "away" for a while, primarily because an internet glitch prevented me from connecting with BSFS or any of my other ning groups. Thankfully, the problem has been fixed, and you'll be seeing a lot more activity from me here in the future.



As far as news goes, I've recently finished the first draft of my second volume of Dossouye's adventures. Now, it's polishing time.



Also, I've just posted a blog entry about Dossouye's war-bull, Gbo, at my website,… Continue

IMARO FAN CLUB

Posted on October 11, 2009 at 8:57am 0 Comments

I just now became aware (thanks to Milton Davis) of the existence of an Imaro Fan Club on Facebook. Here's the link: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=11182358021.

If anyone on BSFS wants to swell the ranks over there, feel free.

And be sure to check out the interview I did of Milton on my website, www.charlessaunderswriter.com. The Griot tells all!

Holy crap!
I feel like a dolt. I've seen your stuff here at the BSFS for a while but it didn't sink in that it was actually you. Please forgive my glacial slowness for 'doing the math' sir!

The rover spent a decade and a half sending data bursts, not words, but according to…

THE UNDERGROUND BY ROXANNE BLAND

Life as alpha of a werewolf pack is anything but predictable. But even Parker Berenson is surprised by the latest twist: he’s fallen in love with a space alien. Problem is, he suspects Melera, his sexy new flame, might be the serial killer terrorizing Seattle. Or maybe she isn’t. After all, just because she’s an interstellar assassin doesn’t mean she’s guilty.
