AfroSFv2 is not only as entertaining as all hell, it's a smorgasbord of top-class imaginative storytelling, originality, superb writing and searing social critique. If this is the future of speculative fiction, we're in safe hands. - Sarah Lotz, author of Day Four. I loved every minute of it. A bouquet with Africa's finest bring futures seen from African perspectives. Refreshing, surprising, magical, grim and beautiful. There is a pulse throbbing through these stories that insists you follow along. - Margret Helgadottir, author of The Stars Seem So Far Away. There was a time when William Gibson said: 'The future is already here, it's just not very evenly distributed.' Then came Ian McDonald who replied: 'The future is actually evenly distributed - as everyone from Nigeria to America, from China to India gets the same iPhone at the same time - it's just that other people are doing more interesting and funky things with it.' So, as the Future arrives everywhere, be prepared to read AfroSFv2 stories, a brilliant mixture of emerging voices from the vanishing peripheral of the world. - Francesco Verso, author of Nexhuman and editor of Future Fiction.
