Garren and the Ironic Dream - Another Ironics Short circa 2005

Another bit of the Ironics story. I've been dusting off the pieces and looking them over and trying to decide if I will ever put them together and make them into something worth reading. This story was written before the one I posted previously. I keep coming back to this one, thinking that something is there, but I haven't returned to write it through to the end.

Tally’s breath was hot on Garren’s face. Garren closed his eyes against the steady press of… Continue

How to Put Black into Speculative Fiction

NOTE: The following is an article that I submitted to Publisher's Weekly for their "ethnic" sf edition, the week of April 13, 2009. PW contacted me and said they liked it but could only use parts of my story and not the entire piece. I wanted to share with the BSF SOCIETY my complete thoughts on how the mainstream industry should approach the development and promotion of Black SF.




What Makes Science Fiction and Fantasy Afrocentric?

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.

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.
