Hi Isak. Thought this might be of some interest to you in respect to AFS (African Science Fiction). While it is true there are not that many of us, our numbers are slowly growing. The active AFS writers I know of are: Lauren Buekes, Nnedi Okorafor, Daliso Chaponda, Jonathan Elorm Dotse (wrote a great recent article on AFS here: http://blogs.african-writing.com/blog/archives/61), Henrietta Rose-Innes, Nick Wood, and I.

Thank you, Ivor, for the reading recommendations! I'll be sure to follow up...

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
