I’m currently looking through 100 AFRICAN WRITERS OF SFF – PART 12: GRAHAMSTOWN, specifically ENDNOTE: AFRO-? AFRICAN-? ASTRO-?

A discussion on the topic of Afro-Futurism. I’ve seen hints of the conversation around so its nice to see an overview in one article. I can’t really give much of an opinion other than it will be interesting to see how the terminology evolves. As a reader I do agree with the end point that marketing matters and can really affect whether we enjoy a work or not.

From Issue 68:  4th Quarter 2018: “Mustering Out” by Deborah L. Davitt

What happens when the cyborg super soldiers return home and have to return their government issued implants?

I really loved this one. Its so well written and I was sucked in from start to finish. I loved the exploration of transhumanism and questioning what is helping people. Good stuff.

 

Educational Articles:

Kofi Annan, UN leader in difficult times, 1938-2018 – Annan lead a difficult life. I can’t even imagine wrapping my brain around making such important decisions. I want to read a biography now.

How Pioneering Physicist Lise Meitner Discovered Nuclear Fission, Paved the Way for Women in Science, and Was Denied the Nobel Prize by Maria Popova – I’m never surprised but I’m always saddened when history gets lost, but I suppose as this article exists, sometimes not forever. That’s worth something.

Emotional Reads:

For pro wrestler Mike Parrow, coming out as gay was ‘best decision of my life’ by Mike Parrow – I teared up a bit but its a happier piece, so that’s wonderful!

And that’s it for this Quick Bite. Thank you for reading!
