The sun is really white you know
Because it’s light

I know

White light has all the colors
And our atmosphere acts like a prism
Giving us orange and yellow and sometimes green
Did you know in Japan they see a red sun

I know

All around the world we see the sun
In different ways
As if it were made in different shades
For everyone

I know

But no one’s ever seen
A purple sun
Not even in Japan

The boy stopped coloring
Put the wrapperless purple crayon into the box
Closed the lid

He crumpled up
His picture of the sun
Hanging low in the mountains
And threw it in the trash

The man got it out of the trash
Uncrumpled it

I'm sorry he said

I know

I shouldn’t have said anything
It's just

I know

It's a damn good picture
Is it a sunrise or a sunset

I don’t know

The man looked out the window
At the still life outside
Imitating art

Neither do I, son
Neither do I

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.
