First Looks, Long Fiction

First Look: Binti


“Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, edgy Afropolitan in space! It’s a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!”

I’ve heard so many good things about Binti and the recent sequel, “Home”. I read “Who Fears Death” by Okorafor last year, and while I loved the writing, I wanted more sci-fi, and a tighter and more concise story. Binti seems to be just that! Okorafor won the 2015 Nebula and a Hugo for Binti, so I’ve got really high expectations. Very excited for this one.
