My short story in Omenana

Omenana issue two is out (long may it continue!) and my story is in it. I’m sure you all remember me being so pleased when they launched that I wrote a post about it here.

Please read the magazine and support African speculative fiction by sharing your favourite stories on your various social media platforms. There is something in it for every lover of science fiction/Fantasy. Also if you’re an African SF/F writer, you’re in luck. Omenana is bi-monthly so you have two months to get your short stories and essays ready for submission. Read guidelines here.

This just happened.

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

BOOM!

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?
