"Thanks Cerece, for your thoughtful contribution to this discussion. Defining the goals and objectives are vital. I tend to weigh in on the "educating our community on what speculative fiction is and why it is relevant" side of the…"
"It's great to see that this question has generated some lively discussion.
I'm not sure what brother Walker means when he asks, "Who wants to read this stuff?" Perhaps a better question is "Why should we WANT to read this…"
"It seems to me that the answer is imbedded in the question: "Black" speculative fiction, at it's best, addresses issues, questions, history from the perspective of people of the African diaspora. When culturally specific issues and…"
I was moved by your shout out to the community. As a relatively new face in the crowd, I know that I have done little to connect with my BSFS neighbors. I think I was a bit overwhelmed when I first signed on. It seemed that so many in…"

Thanks Lin for your comments. Yes I too have questions about the publishing rights for Rite of Passage, but I feel since the some characters are historical and some are Milton Davis's I would just go ahead and submit a story. My own characters I keep in my stories and head. lol I will inbox the story to you. Yes I would love to read a prequel to Black Flame Society , but I really waiting for the next action packed installment. BEWARE OF THE AUTOMEN !
Thanks Lin I will make sure to keep in touch with you. I want revise the story "The Lower Manhattan Horror" because I wrote it in the style of H.P Lovecraft and some people feel his style is too long winded and monotone ( I did get rid of his xenophobic ramblings and used "passing as white" as a little sub plot). Also just submitted to an "steam funk" anthology that's to coincide with a movie "Rite of Passage" that's to open in FEB. I hope I made the cut.
Your welcome Lin. I really can see the project becoming a comic , graphic novel or a movie along the same lines as WATCMEN. I actually read your story twice at work , it has such a two fisted feel to it. Alternate history line stories like yours are great to read in that you take famous historical figures mix them with strong characters and amazing situations. I've written a short story horror/sci-fi period piece , no historical figures just the main characters becoming immortal and getting involved in paranormal situations from just before the start of world war 1 to the present. Once I revise it (writers revise until we die lol) I will let you take a look at it.

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.
