Product description


"There are so many things in How Long 'Til Black Future Month-from firebirds to Megacops, from truffles to hurricanes, from utopias (maybe) to civil rights marches-that it's impossible to describe. Except to say that every single story here is riveting, provocative, and remarkable. An extraordinary story collection from an extraordinary writer!"--Connie Willis, Hugo and Nebula Award winner

"Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold."--Entertainment Weekly

"[E]loquently develops a series of passionately felt themes... one of speculative fiction's most thoughtful and exciting writers."--Kirkus (starred review)

"Powerful and mind-expanding...Jemisin pushes boundaries, experiments with format and theme, and challenges expectations."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"These stories are wonderful. In worlds both invariably cruel and brilliantly imagined, heroism thrives in the margins."--Nicky Drayden, author of The Prey of Gods

"The most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation... Jemisin seems able to do just about everything."--New York Times

"Jemisin's phenomenal success has been something like an earthquake ripping through the traditional order of fantasy itself."--New York/Vulture

"The most critically acclaimed author in contemporary science fiction and fantasy."--GQ

"Marvelous and wide-ranging."--Los Angeles Times

"One line from [Jemisin's introduction] has tattooed itself on my mind, a sort of manifesto for her ongoing work and all the fiction I love: 'Now I am bolder, and angrier, and more joyful.' I felt, after reading these stories, that I was too."--NPR Books

About the Author

N. K. Jemisin is the first author in the genre's history to win three consecutive Best Novel Hugo Awards, all for her Broken Earth trilogy. Her work has also won the Nebula, Locus, and Goodreads Choice Awards. She is currently a reviewer for the New York Times Book Review, and she has been an instructor for the Clarion and Clarion West writing workshops. In her spare time she is a gamer and gardener, and she is also single-handedly responsible for saving the world from King Ozzymandias, her dangerously intelligent ginger cat, and his phenomenally destructive sidekick Magpie.
