honestly if anyone knows of any POC fantasy authors whose work u love pls recommend them to me, i fucking love me a good dragon story but so many of them are racially problematic

N.K. Jemisin is really, really good. The Broken Earth trilogy is great.

@operand i have this one on my to-read list already!!!! i have put beside it "gay, magic, apocalypse" so honestly i can't wait

a friend gave it to me at new year because i didn't have a poker hat. i actually still don't know what it's from v:

@scribblefrog unsure how fantasy it is but this book by an Egyptian author was heavily recommended

N. K. Jemisin is really excellent and has two fantasy trilogies.
Nnedi Okorafor's "Who Fears Death" is also lovely

@anne that's another vote for N K Jemisin, def gonna read that one!! thank u!!

@scribblefrog Really enjoying Children of Blood and Bone, if you're down for more YA style

@scribblefrog Scale Bright and Winterglass by Benjanun Sriduangkaew. They're both super gay too.

@scribblefrog Along with the authors already mentioned, how about J.Y. Yang? I haven't read anything of theirs, but I hear good things.

@toadheart @scribblefrog I've read their duology: Black Tides of Heaven and Red Threads of Fortune. They're really good, although very different in pacing.

And... apparently there are two more novellas in the series now. Whaaaaaat?

Also, The Serpent's Secret by Sayanti Dasgupta is a really fun YA novel based on Indian mythology.

@scribblefrog I want to also mention there's a great anthology translated by Ken Liu: Invisible Planets. Chinese SF, also amazing.

Kai Ashante Wilson: I've read two of his works, The Devil In America and The Sorcerer Of The Wildeeps, highly recommend. You can read The Devil In America online for free
