Dark River by Rym Kechacha

Dark River by Rym Kechacha

It’s hard not to feel that the road is a kind of scar across the land, and the forest is like the new pink tissue forming beneath the old wound, knitting the body back together after being rent apart. Shante thinks of the faint lilac scar across her belly form the C-section giving birth to […]

2019’s Best New Genre TV Shows

2019’s Best New Genre TV Shows 

I still remember my childhood, when I wasn’t much interested in TV shows due to their being a pointed lack of sci-fi and fantasy adaptations. But these days not a week goes by when some new genre fiction gets adapted. Original material also keeps springing up left and right. So, it is almost criminal not […]

Have you heard of Becky Chambers? If you’re a regular reader of Fantasy-Faction, then perhaps you remember an article about her back in August 2018.

Rosewater by Tade Thompson

Rosewater by Tade Thompson
4.25

The description of Rosewater sounds more like a thriller than a science fiction novel, and that is one of the many appeals surrounding this novel.
