As promised, here’s more information about my upcoming appearance:
Shykia Bell will join fellow Speculative, Paranormal, and Science Fiction authors to discuss the evolution of the genres and the ways in which they have, and continue to, prime society for various changes whether cultural, social or technological. Each author will offer their insight into the significance of this and what it means for the future of sci-fi for African Americans and American culture as a whole. They will also discuss their motivation, ambitions as well as their creative and professional challenges and how they’ve overcome them.
Fellow panelists will include:
- Joelle Sterling (Midnight Cravings)
- R. Kayeen Thomas (Antebellum)
- Gregory “Brother G” Walker (Nimrod the Hunter)
