And I’m not a SF writer. @nkjemisin Also,LOVECRAFT COUNTRY isn’t Afrofuturism..... it’s cosmic horror and set in the pastMy essay about my (free!) audio story is now up at the @TorNightfire blog!!!! https://t.co/Gmdmg913XJ“Love Hangover” by Sheree Renee Thomas is a melange of music, myth and horror all told with beautiful poetic prose. https://t.co/iMxFaQHfSZThanks again to everyone who has enjoyed my fiction.
