How Long ‘Til The Black Future Month?: Stories by N.K. Jemisin; Narrated by Shayna Small, Gail Nelson-Holgate, Robin Ray Eller, Ron Butler
Orbit Hachette Audio
Publication Date: November 27, 2018
In N.K. Jemisin’s first collection of short fiction, she provides 22 short stories featuring fantasy and science fiction narratives. Each story, in essence, provides a platform for black characters to be seen in fantasy and science fiction as Jemisin states in her prologue “ How terrifying it’s been to realize no one thinks my people have a future. And how gratifying to finally accept myself and begin spinning the future I wanted to see.” Stories include a king who trusts in magic and dragons to secure his future, a woman who recreates a strange recipe featuring magical ingredients, a restaurant that can recreate any meal from your memories, strange visions in the subway train, enigmatic aliens, and how cities become live being.
