Editorial Reviews


“Science fiction invites audiences to imagine new and different worlds…Soon readers (and listeners) will be able to add some new voices and stories to this mix, thanks to an upcoming collection of short stories from Amazon Original Stories.” —SYFY Wire

“Part of what makes Black Stars so special is the fact that it is showcasing speculative science fiction from Black authors from around the world.” —SYFY Wire

“With a host of amazing authors, Black Stars is perfect for lovers of Afrofuturism, Caribbean science fiction, and African jujuism. As you read the stories, you’ll start to understand why there are so many different genres in the collection…Black Stars introduces people to so many different frameworks, showing the diversity of stories created when Black authors across the diaspora infuse their unique cultural perspectives into these narratives, creating an abundance of originality that lets readers imagine wildly different worlds, realities, and futures.” —Shondaland
