Writers and Characters of Color

Black Sci Fi

Today’s topic comes from Anastasia Vitsky: “How about a day devoted to fic by and about authors of color?”

I think it’s a great idea. Just as we (ok I) too often focus on the MM part of the LGBTQI world in speculative fiction, we (I) also often neglect some of the other parts of our rainbow.

So let’s explore another part of that spectrum today. And lets try to keep this focused on color and not gender… that’s a topic for another day. :)

Are you a spec fic writer of color? If so, have you included that part of you in your writing? What has your experience been? Are people of color underrepresented in the genre? And as readers, what books have you read that included them, especially as protagonists?
