A wonderful collection of fantastical short stories While I love fantasy in general fantasy short fiction is often a tougher sell for me the word limit means that stories aren t often given a chance to breathe and they lack that sense of space that I love in the best fantasy literature Nnedi Okorafor is able to avoid that problem by making most of her stories about magic encroaching on real people and real places concerned less with world building than with imbuing an existing world with the magical the weird or the horrifying Most of the stories take place in Nigeria with a particular recurring focus on the Niger Delta these latter stories which fill the conflict between foreign oil companies and the people of the region with fantasy or sci fi elements tended to be my favorite Many though not all are structured around a young woman discovering an unexpected element of magic either in herself with the handful of stories about the flying windseekers or in the the world around her This could have gotten old but it doesn t because it s used in such an interesting variety of ways I like how magic in Okorafor s world is so morally ambivalent depending on the context its empowering dangerous evil freeing destructive Looking forward to reading from the author
