Ralph Goodman Reviews AfroSF: Science Fiction by African Writers Edited by Ivor Hartmann

AfroSF: Science Fiction by African WritersVerdict: carrot

The publication of this long overdue first anthology of science fiction (SF) by African writers – from across Africa and from African writers who are abroad – is a landmark event.
