Welcome to Issue#4: Diverse Reflections

 

This issue is an examination of and celebration of diversity in speculative fiction. We speak to Stephanie Saulter about her books, life and thoughts on diversity in our featured author interview. Read about odd, animal growths that affect a lesbian relationship, about a Cameroonian lover's line magic, and see the preview of a new comic by Carol Hood in our fiction section. In our non fiction section, check out the first installment of a new column Rendezvous with Rare Books, a personal letter to Octavia Butler, an argument for better portrayals of trans folk, and our attempt to convert a new Unbeliever. Read a personal account of the animated series Avatar, an appreciation of the TV programme Sleepy Hollow and our liveblog of the Blade trilogy in the cross media section. And why not listen to our Afrofuturism playlist in another tab (or cosmic plane) and get some great book recommendations from The Bookshelf.
