The Battle Roar of Sekhmet

Egypt, 1350 BC

I entered the sanctuary area at the back of our hut with a bowl of gazelle meat. Beside me my niece, little Nebet, hugged her miniature drum as if it were a doll. The likenesses of our forefathers and mothers watched our passage with painted eyes, their altars adorned with weapons and the gold flies their valor had earned them in life. But it was the gilded likeness of Sekhmet, she of the lion mask and blood-dyed gown, who awaited our arrival against the…

Lucky Me

Made it to the store and back in record time to catch a great comedy special. Time dilation must have caused it. Yeah. That's how physics works.

Wait Wait, Speculate

After the Afrofuturism Symposium at Clark Atlanta this Monday, I really began to realize just how on point I was with my research interests. I've been interested in the Black Speculative Arts for as long as I can remember, and now that I'm in graduate school I am truly seeing how important they are. Click…

Pondering my character - Nero

The one scribing these words falsely believes that it is she who created me. On the contrary, it was by my choosing that she came to know of my existence, and to experience one of my tales. I’ve walked with her for many years. My very existence is a driving force in your world. And when your time is spent, and the last grain floats towards eternity, it is I who comes to collect.

I have many names, San le Muerte, Reaper, Death. Though I’ve grown fond of the monnicer this scribe…

Enter the S.Y.P.H.E.N.

I like filmed Science Fiction. At some point in those stories, that cool Sci-Fi blue (I, ROBOT poster) will emerge onto the screen and man, I just settle back and enjoy the show. It's not often that African-Americans get to battle the forces of the unknown not just in Sci-Fi, but Fantasy and Horror as well. Combining those two threads and in my mind's eye, that wonderful entity called, imagination, I wrote a screenplay based on a concept that was originally set in the 1800s. I wanted…

He sat at his desk, woozy. He tried to move, his arms unresponsive. He searched for help, moving into the aisle in his swivel chair only to find all his coworkers had abandoned him. Was he being drugged? If so, it was the simplest scene he could imagine.Whoever was trying this was extremely stupid or extremely powerful. He'd find out soon enough.

Call for abstracts for "Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels"

CFP: Images of Blackness in Graphic Novels, Past and Future (Extension to 3/31/18)

by Brian Yates

This edited volume will offer an opportunity for authors to investigate the ways in which blackness is reimagined in both mainstream and independent comics. Specifically, I propose responding to the following questions: What are the ways in which heroism is redefined by black characters? How are black futures reimagined? What gendered arguments are made through this medium? What are the challenges in presenting to black audiences in this largely white genre? How do the creators depict the continent of Africa and/or communities in the African Diaspora? How are black bodies presented in graphic comics and novels? Finally, how are themes of social justice specific to black communities presented in this…

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.
