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!

Aluna's Encounter: The Fissure

Posted by Lauren on May 23, 2017 at 1:13pm 0 Comments

I planted my feet firmly on the ground. I never felt more connected to the planet where I stood than where I was right then in that moment. I took in a large, deep breath. It felt like I was breathing in the essence of crisp fresh snow.

And then I released.

This part of the plateau no one was allowed near. Off to the distance, I could see our city, Sheba, the buildings were made of gold and the streets were littered with diamonds and gems.

I zipped my jacket up and hid behind a large rock and waited.

The reason why people weren't allowed out this far from Sheba was because of the instability of the terrain. The scientists said that our world sometimes would converge with another world; a more dangerous world.

But this terrain was also where the agents came in and out of around this time of the evening. I wanted to see who they were bringing back this time.

A crackling of lightning and static happened…

Excerpt from Terror on Telderan





"Walls of the great chamber where alliance meetings were held were covered with fine priceless art gathered from various galaxies through the years. Soft blue lighting emanating from the oval table lit the room.
Lazon’s Apex was the first to arrive, his long tan robe fluttered behind him as he briskly approached his seat at the head of the oval glass table. Shortly after his arrival the Emperor of Natropi entered the chamber, he was followed by King Ashnar of…

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.
