ANNOUNCED: Bloomsbury Academic Acquires Essay Anthology


Great to part of this! Thanks, to Eugen Bacon, who initiated this over a year ago: Bloomsbury Academic will be publishing this essay anthology covering a HUGE range of topics and insights within Afro-Centred Futurisms, including my essay “Cosmologies and Languages Building Africanfuturism”.

Afro-Centered Futurisms in Our Speculative Fiction is an accessible work of criticism that will appeal to scholarly readers and broader enthusiasts of Afrocentric and speculative literature. 

British Fantasy Award winner Eugen Bacon (ed.)'s AFRO-CENTERED FUTURISMS IN OUR SPECULATIVE FICTION, an anthology of original artistic essays infused with creative excerpts from award-winning African writers on the futurisms in their speculative fiction; a new kind of African study in an evaluative gaze at African history, African spirituality, Afrosurrealism, 'becoming', black radical imagination, cultural identity, decolonizing queerness, myths, linguistic cosmologies, and more, featuring an introduction by Suyi Okungbowa, to Amy Martin at Bloomsbury Academic, by Jennie Goloboy at Donald Maass Literary Agency.

This vibrant and approachable book is part of the Black Literary and Cultural Expressions, and engages with difference—featuring  stimulating chapters by Aline-Mwezi Niyonsenga, Cheryl S. Ntumy, Dilman Dila, Eugen Bacon, Nerine Dorman, Nuzo Onoh, Shingai Njeri Kagunda, Stephen Embleton, Tobi Ogundiran and Xan van Rooyen.

Out by Bloomsbury in 2024/25.
