New Book about Black Women Writer's of Science Fiction

Don't know how this book is since I haven't gotten it for myself yet. The idea of is is sound though.Afro-Future Females: Black Writers Chart Science Fiction's Newest New-Wave Trajectory

It is the first critical anthology to address the "blackness" of outer space fiction in terms of feminism, emphasizing that it is necessary to revise the very nature of a genre that has been constructed in such a way as to exclude its new black participants.

Sounds a little "academic-y" to me. You never know, it could be good.
