Black Speculative Fiction: Home

This is a guide to speculative ficiton written by black authors.

Welcome

This is a student created LibGuide as a requirement for ENGL 485: English Internship. The motivation behind its creation is to give recognition to black authors throughout the African Diaspora who write speculative fiction; a genre in which they are greatly underrepresented and often ignored. Here you can find literature, academic articles, and other media in relation to black speculative literature. If you have any concerns, questions, or would even like to edit this guide as part of your English Internship, please do not hesitate to contact the UDC Library.

Below are a few essential novels to help you get started.
