This book, 60 Black Women In Horror, is something of an eye-opener. Let’s face it: other than Octavia Butler and L.A. Banks, the number of black women known for writing anything other than Urban Romance and whatnot is mighty damn slim. I’ll admit to the shortcoming on my part; I flat out didn’t know about most of them. Which makes me truly grateful to Sumiko Saulson for putting this one together.
In her own words, in addition to a few new short stories it’s laden with interviews from the following persons of interest:
- 60 Black Women in Horror (the list)
- Interview with Linda Addison
- Interview with Darlene Black
- Interview with Jemiah Jefferson
- Interview with Nnedi Okorafor
- Interview with A.L. Peck
- Interview with Sumiko Saulson
- Interview with L. Marie Wood
In addition, you’ll also receive bonus content not available in the print edition:
- Short Story by Crystal Connor, “Amber’s New Friend”
- Short Story by Sumiko Saulson, “The Last”
- Essay by David Watson, “On L.A. Banks and Octavia Butler”
