“And next up I’m looking forward to reading Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond, which I want to plug because it is, in my opinion, on the cutting edge.”– Sarah Hans, editor of the forthcoming anthology, Steampunk World
Steadily, word is starting to spread about the ground-breaking anthology, Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond.

Somtow, Eden Robinson, Vandana Singh, Rabih Alameddine, and Linda D. Addison; the genre-starting work of Charles R. Saunders; the genre-defying writings of Darius James and Greg Tate; as well as exciting, new writers like Carmen Maria Machado, Chinelo Onwualu, Jaymee Goh, and Tade Thompson. Literary awards from the Pulitzer Prize to the Bram Stoker are represented in this collection as well as every land from both hemispheres. Truly diverse and truly spectacular, Mothership has most definitely taken off.
