Read “To Say Nothing of Lost Figurines”
New story alert! I’m in the Dominion anthology of speculative fiction with awesome writers like Nuzo Onoh, Suyi Davies Okungbowa and Dilman Dila.
In 2018, I was accepted into the Clarion West workshop (and my drive to continue writing was refilled). “To Say Nothing of Lost Figurines” was the first story I wrote at the workshop. It’s also the first time I attempted writing something funny. From the reviews coming in, I may have succeeded in this!Get Dominion: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora (Volume One) here!
I’m in Strange Horizons’ Nigerian issue!
Have you ever started writing something, stopped and then visited it years later only to wonder what on earth you were writing about? That’s what happened to me with my latest story out on Strange Horizons, “Where The Rain Mothers Are”. As I sat down to rewrite the story, I still didn’t know where I was heading with it but I knew the story was about family, food and had an airship. So there you have it, “Where The Rain Mothers Are”. I’ve already had inquiries as to whether the story will continue and I can share that it will (if/when I finally sit down to write it).
Many thanks to Vajra Chandrasekera for inviting me to submit to this issue and for polishing my story to its current state.Read Strange Horizons issue 29 April, 2019 here!
