Alien Encounters: An Atlanta SF Celebration of Authors of Color

As I ponder the significance of my first science fiction festival I get excited about the possibilities. Over the past 2 years some of my dreams of seeing minorities getting a fair shake in the genre of science fiction have been realized. Particularly the creation of http://www.BlackScienceFictionSociety.com, a focal point by which our voices can be heard, connections formed and projects created. Lord willing the Black Science Fiction Anthology will at long last be completed before the event and the second phase of my master plan will begin.

Alien Encounters is scheduled for Thursday, September 2, 2010 through Sunday, September 5, 2010
The Auburn Ave Research Library on African American Culture, in Atlanta, GA and history will present an event to explore speculative fiction in novels, comics, graphic art by African American artists and writers — including book signings and readings.

I encourage you to visit the site and become an active member by using the features and networking with others of like mind. http://www. BlackScienceFictionSociety.com

Black Science Fiction Society Anthology – It’s Coming

I am getting more and more excited about the Black Science Fiction Society Anthology.  As this week comes to a close finale edits to the actual document and cover are being made.  It looks like we are on schedule to meet are deadlines and I’m gearing up for the tasks that need to take place next. Lord wiling, this book will further Black Science Fiction as a whole and give exposure to up and coming writers.  I want to continue to thank everyone involved in the project for their contributions and hard word. Please stays tuned for more updates to the project and visit the main website at www.BlackScienceFictionSociety,com
