Revisiting Good Trouble
Do not get lost in a sea of despair. Be hopeful, be optimistic. Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble. We will find a way to make a way out of no way.”–John Lewis, 1940-2016
There and Back Again
A return to blogging…
He drew a deep breath. Well, I’m back he said.
Hi everyone. Been a long time since I blogged. But, I think I may be ready to return. Perhaps for real this time. A lot has happened since I last posted in February. I finished and submitted the first book in my upcoming MG series which was announced back last April. My novel A Master of Djinn was nominated for several awards, and won both a Nebula, Locus, and Ignyte award. My short story “If the Martians Have Magic” published in Uncanny Magazine, has also been nominated and won an Ignyte award. I attended a few cons, including one where I got to be a guest of honor for winning the Compton Crook. Lots has happened in genre too. We got tons of new fantasy and sci-fi books, movies and shows–a golden era of geekdom. And we got some folks losing their natural minds and acting a damn fool over Black Hobbits or Black Mermaids. (Go outside and touch grass nerds.) What a time to be alive. I have missed however being on this blog, talking about writing, my favorite TV series, issues of diversity, politics and more in SFF.
So I’m gonna try to be here more. To talk bout stuff. We’ll see how long it lasts.
Happy Book Pub Day: Ring Shout
Nebula, Locus, and Alex Award-winner P. Djèlí Clark (that’s me) returns with Ring Shout, 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 moreContinue reading
