Talk ABout It Tuesday Afro Sci Fi Anthology

"Thanks for your honest review of AFRO Sci-Fi. Your observations are valid. "Collection" is probably a better description of my e-book. I wanted to offer readers my vision of spec fic tales. I am an AFROFuturist, thus, mostly, I write…"

Profile Information

About Me:
Stafford writes for a blog called “The AFROFuturist” and other online sites such as “DWASF: Diverse Writers & Artists Of Speculative Fiction” and the “Black Science Fiction Society”. He is an author, speaker, and instructional designer. Battle has been published by a major book company and independently. His most recent book is called “Resurrecting the King” in homage to the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s groundbreaking novel, Frankenstein but with an African flavor. He writes speculative fiction offering alternative viewpoints featuring people of color as major characters.

Stafford believes that “AFROFuturism” is not a recent phenomenon or a new genre of sci-fi in blackface. He has written essays and blog posts on the “Architects of AFROFuturism” which mentions Black writers in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries who predicted a future filled multiculturalism as well as laser pistols. He believes that exposure to speculative arts can educate people to look beyond their day-to-day lives and create a positive future. An article he wrote appeared in the New Pittsburgh Courier called “Science Fiction can rescue Black communities” – October 7, 2013. He also appeared in The Dallas Weekly for a story he wrote called “Why I Became an AFROFuturist” – November 15, 2013. On Friday, October 11, 2013, Stafford Battle was interviewed on WURD 900 AM, an African American talk radio station in Philadelphia to talk about about the value of AFROFuturism.

Consider The Great War of Africa When You Write

Posted on July 12, 2017 at 10:22pm 2 Comments

I want AFROcreators to produce more stories, movies, comics, art, and music about the "Great War of Africa."

The BSFS is a good place for AFROFuturistic writers to gain inspiration. Here, we can share, critique and support as well as promote each other's works. Let's put out more ideas for education,…

A New Flash Fiction Video from Sbattle

Posted on May 22, 2014 at 9:18pm 1 Comment

I know as authors we all need to have a book video to promote our work. I am working on an "Author Platform Video" to introduce potential readers to what I can do.  But I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I created this in PowerPoint.

All comments are welcomed.

Why Africa Must Go to the Moon

Posted on December 5, 2013 at 12:31am 0 Comments

There are many reasons why the nations of Africa should set aside their religious conflicts,  invite the African Diaspora to return home,  create a common currency and go to the Moon. India just launched a probe to Mars. The Chinese are planning a space station and an effort to put a base on…

Hi Stafford, thanks for stopping by.  As for having any art to show, I have art journal work I've done, but nothing to compare to the fantastic work here.  Maybe down the way I might be bold enough to place something up. Look forward to interacting with you on the site.:)

Been Debating If I Should Finish This Story

Posted by Jacqueline Loggins on April 23, 2018 at 5:16pm 0 Comments

Effortlessly I pulled the tan stocking above my knee, sliding it across the thickness of my thigh before securing it to the garter. My hand now moved to my large, plump lips, where I dotted a speck of moisturizer before rubbing them together to get a perfect, even distribution. They now taste and smelled of cherry spice. Now for some color, I thought, opening the pallet of endless lip stains to see which would suit my attire for the evening.

This one! I decided as my finger tapped near the burnt orange circle titled Pale Sunbeam. The laser brush slid across airbrushing my top lip, then the lower. Blotting my lips, I smiled in the light-framed mirror, satisfied with my choice of color. The spotlights illuminated my sequin bra top, creating dazzling sparkles of purple and gold.…

I Was Starving

Posted by Jacqueline Loggins on April 23, 2018 at 4:55pm 2 Comments

No, I wasn't starving for food. I was starving or opportunity, direction, human interaction and friendship, but mostly I was starving for innovation and success. You see, around this time last year I found myself in a rut. I was doing hair, writing stories, making dolls etc etc. It felt like being on a hamster wheel to nowhere. And top on of everything else, our family was in a financial bind. Yes, I our ends didn't meet and we have more month at the end of our money.

One day while trying to complete a doll and at the same time worried if our gas would be cut off, something just told me to stop. I was trying to put out so much, but was taking nothing back in in return. Yes, I had burned out and what's worse our family was broke. So, I suggested to my…

SKYCITY TALKRADIO

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.
