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
@operand also, i see that fucking hat, i see it,,
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:
Don't worry, I'm well aware :p
That's pretty accurate tbh.
@scribblefrog unsure how fantasy it is but this book by an Egyptian author was heavily recommended
@wintgenstein o damb it looks good thank u!!
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
@oneiric_acid always up for a YA!!
@scribblefrog Scale Bright and Winterglass by Benjanun Sriduangkaew. They're both super gay too.
@Caelyn hell yes gimmie dat gay shit
@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 oooh thanks for the rec, i'll check them out!
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 NK Jemisin for fantasy, just offhand.
@scribblefrog I want to also mention there's a great anthology translated by Ken Liu: Invisible Planets. Chinese SF, also amazing.
@purin Ooooh awesome!! thank you!!!
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
@davidsullins aw cool, thank you!!
