Review: 'Africa Risen: A New Era of Speculative Fiction' edited by Sheree Renée Thomas, Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki, Zelda Knight

In the last few years Speculative Fiction has quickly risen to the very near top, if not the top itself, of my favourite genres list. The great thing about this kind of "umbrella" genre is that it gets to include elements from many other genres, while solidly founded in the un-real, or rather, in the things not proven to exist or yet in existence. And so we get horror elements, a lot of fantasy and science fiction influences, and much more. There are also many brilliant authors working in Speculative Fiction and with this collection Thomas, Ekpeki, and Knight have introduced me to a whole new set. Thanks to Tordotcom and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Pub.

A  must-read for all genre fans."— Publishers Weekly , starred review From award-winning editorial team Sheree Renée Thomas, Oghenechovwe Donald Ekp
