There’s been a lot of hoopla recently about this issue, including the #DiversityInSFF hashtag and assorted follow up blogs, comments, arguments. Really, it’s a conversation we’ve been having since long before I got involved in the sci-fi community, and it’s good it’s getting some large scale traction. Below are two pieces of the conversation I’ve been involved with:
The great Roxane Gay wrote up Salsa Nocturna as part of an essay in The Nation on the changing face of SFF.
And I hosted a roundtable discussion at Strange Horizons with some authors and industry people about re-imagining an anti-oppressive SFF: Set Truth On Stun.
