Content warning:



I threw a chair at my dad and he died (a tubular
ladder back, joined like our intertidal Jesus, so
no nails, algal-stained, ascendable and bloody,
a rude instrument, whiny with that all-thanatic
force of theophany, and flotsam-pride fangled)
because the ring-ship’s artificial gravity is off-
kilter. But the palm-woven seat warped in dome
3 yard 1’s humid heat, and my dad confusingly
resurrected as an ectoplasmic anemone surging
from the weird fronds. Tripped by the fence of
a carambola tree, I crashed through the domino
table, and crawling out its dotty splinters, faced
dad’s new shape crying in the chair: “Thanks I
get for fleeing your creditors!” O the guilt rays
peel this skull free of wrapping paper skin and
knock the noisy rattler, my turkey vulture head,
round and round. Brindis for the funder-galaxy,
raise the receipts: all for education and for none.

The comb is kept in a small case and a magnifying glass is there for you
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.
