Matthew Laznicka was born to create; even from the earliest age he was putting crayon to paper to bring to life vividly colorful creatures to delight and astound his parents. Matthew attended the Milwaukee Institute of Design and graduated in 1991 with a BFA in Illustration. His goals are to saturate the world in the absurd, to boldly illustrate the insane, and to reach always for that branch above.

Matthew feels that his style not only captures a depth of his persona, but portrays eras that have always captured his soul. His inspiration comes from old films such as Hitchcock's, Frank Capra's, and B-grade science fiction. He loves nostalgia and lives to recreate its essence in his illustration. He believes that the past is something to treasure and hold tight in our hearts. "An old photo does not just reveal the people pictured, it reveals emotion and a bygone era of history; it's all in its story."

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.
