What we're about

There is a dearth of black and brown characters in Science Fiction and Fantasy. It is easy to find pasty white vampires, Saruman/Gandalf the Whites, good white elves, and evil black elves. If we buy into what the mainstream is selling, white people are the only ones living on alien planets or facing down dragons with a sword in one hand and a flaming ball of magic in the other. The hunt for the elusive character of color generally leads to urban fiction and stories of inspiration or spirituality--criminals gone good, weak women turned strong. But where are the Speculative Fiction writers that are writing main characters of color? If you are out there, we'd love to meet you!
