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…

IMARO IV IS IN THE HOUSE!

It means more than you can imagine for me to be able to say that the fourth book in the Imaro series, Imaro: The Naama War, is now available. It can be ordered directly from:

I first wrote this book nearly 25 years ago. It was to be the apex of the Imaro series. In… Continue

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 Perfect Fluid...

If collisions between small projectiles -- protons (p), deuterons (d), and helium-3 nuclei (3He) -- and gold nuclei (Au) create tiny hot spots of quark-gluon plasma, the pattern of particles picked up by the detector should retain some 'memory' of each projectile's initial shape. Measurements from the PHENIX experiment match these predictions with very strong correlations between the initial geometry and the final flow patterns.

Peace. As the post title says, (inspired by Rakim's greatest opening lines), this marks somewhat of a return. I have not posted in a long while, so here I am. I hope everyone whom I have not communicated with; are doing well. 

I will be checking in more often than not.

Peace.

The Diversity Track & Black Science Fiction Society Back For Dragoncon 2019

I just got news this week that the Diversity Track will be back for 2019 at DragonCon. I'm excited to be invited back for another groundbreaking event. Everyone associated with the first one this year knocked it out of the park! I could not ask for better volunteers, guests, photographers, moderators and participants.

Assault of the Mainstream

Posted by Turtel Onli on December 6, 2018 at 8:10am 1 Comment

Now that the Mainstream has tried and failed to take the life force outta the growing indie-Black age movement with its "afro-futuristic" blockbuster along with its here today-gone tomorrow great token Hero of Harlem, who among us is really about winning at  this challenge and profiting from the opportunities it presents?

Their best efforts to corner and control the Black Age is my proof that we are actually winning in this war for minds and market shares.....inspite of addictive  brand loyalty...the Black On Black boycott....and culturally based anti-intellectualisms.  I often present on panels.....over the years since 1992....at San Diego,,,,,Wizards.......C2E2.....on the Black Age or diversity....  Usually with a lame unprofessional uninformed person in charge.  Each time some hater stands up to taut how racist the Black Age is and how he of she gets so much more outta Manga/Anime'.

Sort of like all of the Black folks that spent 8 years complaining about…

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.
