Book Details

"[A] magnificent and wide-ranging anthology . . . A must-read for all genre fans."—Publishers Weekly, starred review

From award-winning editorial team Sheree Renée Thomas, Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki, and Zelda Knight comes an anthology of thirty-two original stories showcasing the breadth of fantasy and science fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora.


A group of cabinet ministers query a supercomputer containing the minds of the country’s ancestors. A child robot on a dying planet uncovers signs of fragile new life. A descendent of a rain goddess inherits her grandmother’s ability to change her appearance—and perhaps the world.

Created in the legacy of the seminal, award-winning anthology series Dark Matter, Africa Risen celebrates the vibrancy, diversity, and reach of African and Afro-Diasporic SFF and reaffirms that Africa is not rising—it’s already here.

Praise for Dominion: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora, edited by Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki and Zelda Knight

“I love this anthology. New voices, new visions—science fiction would be much poorer without it.”—Pat Cadigan

Dominion is a massive achievement—the first new anthology with African editorship in some years. Established writers like Dilman Dila, Mame Bougouma Diene, Ekpeki Oghenechovwe, and Dare Segun Falowo join writers from Africa and the Diaspora. Each story is a coruscating world of its own.”—Geoff Ryman

“The sheer range of the stories in Dominion is a testament to the genius of Black authors working around the world today.”—T.L. Huchu

Dominion is worth picking up not just for the wealth it contains, but because it's an important anthology, one that will help shape this decade of reading.”—Cat Rambo
