Praise for Glimpse

“These brilliant Black British creatives are writing themselves into speculative pasts and futures, widening an ever-growing circle of new visionary work that reimagines identities and cultures in a masterful form that readers love, the short story.”

Sheree Renée Thomas

Editor, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction

Glimpse is the first anthology of speculative fiction by Black British writers, showcasing a variety of distinctive and exclusive narratives. They include Afrofuturistic, magic realism and transformational stories, glancing into different worlds and new lives. These stories create a dichotomy between the comfortable and the mysterious, tantalizing in their mystique and refreshing in their insight.

The contributors include award winning and internationally renowned fiction writers, poets and visual artists: Patience Agbabi, Muli Amaye, Alinah Azadeh, Judith Bryan, Patricia Cumper, Joshua Idehen, Melissa Jackson-Wagner, Peter Kalu, Ronnie McGrath, Katy Massey, Claudia Monteith, Chantal Oakes, Irenosen Okojie, Koye Oyedeji, Nii Ayikwei Parkes, Jeda Pearl, Aisha Phoenix, Akila Richards, Ioney Smallhorne and Gemma Weekes.


Editor: Leone Ross is a fiction writer and editor. Her latest novel is the New York Times’ Editor’s Choice This One Sky Day/Popisho (Faber/FSG, 2021). Described by the Times Literary Supplement as ‘a master of detail’, her fiction has been nominated for the Women’s Prize, the Goldsmiths award, the RSL Ondjaate award, and the Edge Hill Prize, among others.

Foreword: Dr. Reynaldo Anderson is an Associate Professor at Temple University in Africology and African American Studies, and the executive director and co-founder of the Black Speculative Arts Movement (BSAM).

Series Editor: Kadija Sesay is the Publications Manager for Inscribe, a professional writers development programme.
