How Long 'til Black Future Month? by N.K. Jemisin
Hugo award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisin sharply examines modern society in her first short story collection.
Dragons and hateful spirits haunt the flooded streets of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. In a parallel universe, a utopian society watches our world, trying to learn from our mistakes. A black mother in the Jim Crow South must save her daughter from a fey offering impossible promises.
And in the Hugo award-nominated short story "The City Born Great," a young street kid fights to give birth to an old metropolis's soul.
