This just happened.

I love speculative fiction. And I love Igbo culture. Put them together and what do you get?

BOOM!

OOmenana front-page-x

Is this cover not delightfully creepy?!

Omenana is the igbo word for ‘culture’, specifically the traditional beliefs and practices of Igbo people. The magazine is NOT just for Igbo stories though. It’s an African spec-fic magazine founded by Chinelo Onwualu and Mazi Nwonwu, who are both Igbo.

I am happy this forum exists.

Click on the cover to get to the website. A new issue will be available every month. Plenty of time to tweak those stories and send them in, guys! Don’t be like me. I was asked to submit something for this issue, but I had nothing ready. I could have been in this line-up! Did I mention Tendai Huchu has a story in it?

*Nollywood-style voice-over* Omenana! Omenana! Grab your copy! Now! (Not marketed in Ikorodu road or 51 Iweka road Onitsha. Freely available on the internet.)
