The amazing Nalo Hopkinson (in my opinion, one of the five best writers of English-language fantasy in the history of the genre) has a wonderful essay today on what it means to be a fan or writer of color in the SFF genre.

Her essay is part of a protest meant to increase the visibility of people of color within the genre.

As previously posted, that you may shop more conveniently, I offer the ongoing nonexhaustive list of authors of speculative fiction writing in or translated into English who are not of European descent.

If you think that list begins and ends with Octavia Butler and Chip Delany, may I respectfully suggest that you click the cut tag. Emendations and additions are encouraged.
