Worlds Without End Roll-Your-Own Reading Challenge

Speculative Fiction by Authors of Colour 2024

Back for another year...

Rules are very simple, read any novel or novella 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.

It would also be good if we could all review at least one book we have read.
