Dominion: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora
by Zelda Knight (Editor)
Still making my way through this anthology.
A Mastery of German by Marian Denise Moore
I couldn‘t find much about the author, but think she might be from Louisiana and is a computer analyst and poet. And this story is a finalist of the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award 2021. https://www.tor.com/2021/07/07/theodo…
A near-future story about memories and passing them on in a genetic procedure. The technology is not explained or shown and the ethical implications are mentioned, but not elaborated on much. But it would probably need a novel to explore all that. I liked it. The main character was relatable, the writing was very readable. ★★★★☆
Convergence in Chorus Architecture by Dare Segun Falowo
Another Nigerian author. More about them and their work in this article / interview: http://strangehorizons.com/non-fictio…
And a short bio and links to some stories here: https://www.thedarkmagazine.com/autho…
Mythology, Nigerian gods, dreams. Didn‘t captivate me. ★★¾☆☆
Emily by Marian Denise Moore
A snippet with possibilities.
I will post updates whenever I finish another story.
I received this free e-copy from the publisher/author via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review, thank you!
