AFRO Sci-Fi Anthology
The African fantastic appeals to people of all cultures. The Afro Sci-Fi Anthology offers stories with an unique AfroCentric viewpoint. Sword and Soul, Black Weird West, Afro Horror, and Space Opera reward the reader with unexpected and exciting perspectives in speculative literature. African fairies, galactic slavers, Nubian demigods, mad scientists, and monsters will push your imagination to the limit. Two African warriors use magic and muscle to gain favor with a beautiful priestess and defy an aging god. Down south in America, a Yankee reporter disturbs deadly supernatural forces. A wealthy Black family faces Nubian demons and demi-gods that could transform America. In Earth orbit, a traditional wedding is interrupted by galactic slave traders. In the old West, a Black sheriff with shaman powers uses wit and a fast gun to protect a town. This anthology digs into what makes Science Fiction and Fantasy black.
