“Within this revelatory 22-piece anthology of prose and poetry across the horror, fantasy, and science fiction genres, editors Allen and Cherelle have gathered works by some of the best and boldest voices in African-American speculative writing...

Inspired by the work of Black science fiction and speculative fiction writers Octavia Butler, Jewelle Gomez, Nalo Hopkinson, N.K. Jemisin, and others; as well as by the theory of Afro-futurism as defined by Alondra Nelson, BLF Press is excited to announce a collection that encompasses the broad spectrum of Black speculative writing, including science fiction, fantasy, and Afrofuturism, all by Black women writers.
