100 African Writers of SFF Part Two Africans in the UK

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site


Part Two of the series interviewed 11 writers including long interviews with Jennifer Makumbi and Nikhil Singh along with considerations of their work. The article noted a relationship in the rise of American SFF between the experience of diaspora and the writing of fantasy and science fiction. Could a similar dynamic be at work in writers of the African diaspora? This 37,000-word article was the result of work done while waiting for the Leverhulme International Academic Fellowship to begin based at the University of Cape Town. The article appeared while I was abroad. Hosting of the series will be taken over by the online magazine Strange Horizons in 2017. http://www.tor.com/2016/11/01/100-african-writers-of-sff-part-two-writers-in-the-u-k/
