The Black Fantastic Bundle - Curated by Zelda Knight
Every year, during Black History Month, we commemorate the achievements of Black people worldwide. This celebration encompasses all facets of Black life and culture, including the written word. By curating this bundle on storybundle.com, I hope to expose more readers to some of the best writing in the Black Fantastic tradition, including bestselling authors, award-winners, and rising stars.
The Black Fantastic is a catch-all term that transcends strict definition. It weaves together genres as diverse as Afro & African Futurisms, Horror Noire, Steamfunk, Sword & Soul, alternate histories, fables, spirituality, science fiction, fantasy, romance, and so much more.
This amazing bundle contains a short story collection by a two-time World Fantasy Award-Winning author, two Afrocentric anthologies, and seven fantastic novels and novellas under the umbrella of the Black Fantastic. Prolific, award-winning writers that are foundational reads are included, such as Sheree Renée Thomas, Milton J. Davis, and Nicole Givens Kurtz, as well as established favorites and rising stars such as Eboni J. Dunbar, Bendi Barrett, Cerece Rennie Muphy, Jessica Cage, and Zelda Knight.
Name your price to support these fantastic authors, with a portion of the proceeds from this sale going towards a worthy charity fostering new writers. Learn more about the individual contributors and their books in the bundle by reading my curator notes. Welcome to The Black Fantastic, and get ready to explore. – Zelda Knight
