Every February in the United States, the country sets aside 28 (or 29 in a leap year) days to celebrate, discuss and engage Black History. Innocuous enough.

It’s a cornucopia of misconceptions and endless micro-aggressive racial faux-pas.
Nebula, Locus, and Alex Award-winner P. Djèlí Clark (that’s me) returns with RingShout, a dark fantasy historical novella that gives an unflinching look at Ku Klux Klan’s reign of terror. Yup, like I told y’all last time, I wrote another book. And it’s here! Out today. Wanna know more
You know I’ve been waiting to talk about this right? So let’s do it then. Lovecraft Country. Right here, right now. Been a minute since I just rambled geek stuff on here. So it’s long. You might wanna grab a snack.
