Yesterday I saw a tweet requesting suggestions for fantasy books by people of color. When I couldn’t limit myself to a tweet, I decided to post my recommendations here.
Ghost Bride, by Yangsze Choo
Swan Book and Carpentaria, by Alexis Wright
The Best of All Possible Worlds, by Karen Lord.
Women without Men, by Shahrnush Parsipur
Zahrah the Windseeker, by Nnedi Okorafor.
Although this is a blog about Global Women, I have to also include Grass Growing, Water Running by Thomas King.
Other women of color who regularly write fantasies and speculative fiction.
In addition, I wrote a blog about how fantasy by people of color can be unique. Read it here.
For the last two years Aarti has hosted A More Diverse Universe, a time for reading and sharing such books. You can find her blog here. She will have other suggestions.
Readers: What other suggestions can you add?
