We’re excited to share an excerpt from LaShawn M. Wanak’s essay “Metropolis Meets Afrofuturism: The Genius of Janelle Monáe”. The essay appears in Lost Transmissions, a fascinating illustrated history of lost, overlooked, and uncompleted works of science fiction and fantasy —available now from Abrams Books.
In February of 2016, Fantastic Stories of the Imagination published an essay Nisi Shawl wrote called “A Crash Course in the History of Black Science Fiction.” Since then, Tor.com has published her in-depth essays on 18 of the 42 works mentioned. In this very special 19th column, Nisi is taking a break so we can review her short story collection Filter House.
