Author Joyce Chng (aka J. Damask) asked me the other day on Twitter to talk about non-US SFF written by persons of color — and woefully, I thought, I am utterly ignorant of the subject and — I mean, jeez, do I even have a single book to recommend? I don’t. And that’s on me not paying enough attention to these sorts of things, and so I told @jolantru I’d open up a post about it.
And it dovetails nicely with my Monday “crowdsourcing the essentials” posts, I think.
So, let’s talk about the essential reads that fit those categorizations: non-US and written by persons of color.
Who wants to start?
