      How Long Til Black Future Month is simply superb There wasn t a story in the twenty two that didn t impress Jemisin is a science fiction and fantasy powerhouse, and that is clear by the sheer variety of tales told there are a dozen novel worthy worlds crafted in this volume Jemisin opens with The Ones Who Stay and Fight, a direct story response to Ursula K Le Guin s The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas It ends with a parallel a story about a man defending his city, post Katrina New Orle < [...]

      This was, I m ashamed to admit, the first N.K Jemisin book I ve ever read I don t say this because I subscribe to the belief that there are books which are required reading in the fantasy genre because I absolutely don t , but rather because on reading the stories in How Long til Black Future Month, I was struck by just how damned gifted Jemisin is as a writer And yet I m only finding that out now.But then, gifted isn t really the best word to use here These stories are very much a ref This was, [...]

    5. Marchpane on said:

      Based on the title, I was expecting How Long til Black Future Month to be a little sci fi leaning and or a lot overtly political But as Jemisin points out in her introduction, just being a black woman writing sci fi and fantasy that features black characters is a political act Occasionally she does reference real world events, such as the terrific Sinners, Saints, Dragons, and Haints, in the City Beneath the Still Waters , about a young man and his elderly neighbour trying to surv Based [...]
