How Long 'til Black Future Month?

Stories

By N. K. Jemisin

Loved by our collective!

Wow! I am usually luke-warm about short story collections because it rarely feels like enough time for me to become invested in the story or characters, but Jemisin immediately pulled me in within the first couple of sentences. Some of the stories are dystopian and grotesque, many are invigorating and hopeful, most leave lingering questions unanswered. Jemisin allows us only a taste of the strange and wonderful futuristic worlds she has dreamed up.

My favorites were the sensual, mysterious stories centered around food that made me ache for half-forgotten meals, and yearn for flavors yet unknown. 

Read for: Something that will blow your mind!

CW: Some blood & gore, death, natural disasters.
