Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Speculative Fiction by Authors of Colour

Speculative Fiction by Authors of Colour

This one proved popular last year, so here it is again.

Rules are very simple, read whatever you want that fits the challenge of being speculative fiction by people of colour. If you can find some authors you've never read before, even better.

Novels, novellas, or short stories are all acceptable. It would also be good if we could all review at least one book we have read.
