From where your stories come?

Where did that story come from?



It came from the mist of course. The main problem with an oral tradition is that the details get fuzzier as the time goes on, soon the truth is lost in antiquity. You have to hear the story told from various people to get an idea of what the original message was about.



The mbira is a musical instrument of the Shona people of the Zimbabwe area. They report a particular story around the instrument, how it came to them. Other African peoples also… Continue

Musings of a Steampunk of Color

I've been reading a lot of articles about we Steampunks of Color and while it's cool to know that we are out there, some of the over-analyzation about being a minority in this subculture is kind of self-defeating, not to mention borders on the whiny. I’m far from naïve, and know that perception is everything, but why are we iconoclasts of color—in whatever realm we choose to call…

not seen on TV, yet

Even though the light saber was an "elegant weapon for a more civilized time", what if Mace Windu who like all Jedi built his own light saber, had also built a light saber proof mini shield or buckler. An African warrior would of had spear and shield. The shield would be emitted from a finger ring (always handy).



Another thought, thinking of President Obama, his love for the Blackberry PDA and his African Ancestry. The Diaspora Cyber Tribe. They each have a Blackberry device able to… Continue

afrofuturist spaceship in Canadian art show



Saturday was a big day for Outerregion. In the afternoon, Camille participated in a panel discussion with two of the other artists who are featured in Truth or Fiction?



The artists’ works in the show all have elements of challenging the notion of a single story of Canadian history. Have we been told the truth? Whose story is being told? Who is absent? Can we make our own narratives and tell stories in our own ways? Can we create new

realities? Can we change the…

Book Update

Ok, as of 11:56 last night, I finished the draft writing of my novel.



After wrestling with this thing since I first started writing it in late 2005 / early 2006, I finally have the complete book written out. That doesn't mean I'm done - I still have to let these last 3 chapters marinate a few days or a week, tweak and rework here and there, then put up the podcast episodes, but it's done. No longer a novel in progress, now it's a novel!







According to the stats I've… Continue

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.
