Strange Horizons Gallery Presents...

Arthur Davis Broughton

In my darker works, I like to investigate the relationship of modern humankind to ancient religions. This often creates conflict. One such image is the problem of Hell. Simply stated, the theory goes: How can Heaven be the perfect place it is said to be if those in Heaven are aware that there are people no more worthy of damnation than themselves (it is only by the grace of God that any are in Heaven as we are all sinners) being eternally tortured in Hell. Even the most heinous of crimes surely do not deserve eternal damnation.

Hopefully these images will be interesting even without the explanations that caused me to create them. I would enjoy hearing from you if you are intrigued or offended by these images.

Know that the end / is something that you cannot escape here.
I wanted to ask francophone African speculative authors how they feel, how non-Black francophone African authors relate to the controversy, but also how they position themselves either as Afrofuturists or Africanfuturists, or as neither.
The new idea is to have the sixth sensors oversee the end of humanity.

In conclusion, I argue that SF fanzines in China mostly played a transitional role. That is, when no professional platforms were available to publish articles and stories, fanzines stepped in. Though most of those fanzines did not last very long, they played the important role of compiling and delivering information. The key reason why I identify those magazines as fanzines is because all the contributors joined out of their interest in SF and worked for free.
