“The Last of Its Kind” reviewed in Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond: “The last magician hunts the last dragon in the days of a decaying imperium. Sad, poignant tale.”

“No Name Islands” review: “I think this story was the most visceral for me, despite how short it is. Here, too, we are in a speculative world of what might be with regard to ecology, this time with terraforming. The final image in this story will haunt me for a long time.”
