Speculative Fiction on NPR

The NPR month-long literature series The Black Literary Imagination last Friday featured Black Science Fiction and Fantasy.

Our look at the African-American literary imagination continues with a trip into the outer limits of genre writing — science fiction, fantasy and horror — and the unique challenges faced by black writers of speculative fiction.

Farai Chideya talks with fantasy writer Tananarive Due, science fiction writer Steven Barnes, and speculative fiction editor Sheree R. Thomas.

Note: NPR has mixed up the recordings. Believe it or not this story can be found here at The Cost of Going Green.
