  • Book Club: A Memory Called Empire
    A Memory Called Empire is the author’s debut novel and won the 2020 Hugo Award for Best Novel. The author is AnnaLinden Weller, who writes under the name of Arkady Martine.

An accomplished author, she writes African-based science fiction and fantasy (African futurism and African jujuism), and her other works have won many awards. Here’s the blurb to give this review context: The day Fatima forgot her name, Death paid a visit. From here on … Continue reading Book Club: Remote Control
