Just one of those things that I always wondered about. Stags and otters are all very well, but what if you end up with a tiny chameleon or giant blue whale? I mean, it could be a giant tub of nutella…

Anyway, so glad I got around to doing this pic -drawing the less attractive animals was awesome.

Popped it up on Redbubble because they have tote bags and cushions now which is just wow - can grab it also on cards or posters - check it out here!

We worry our patronus would somehow be related to NYC…a pigeon or subway rat or waterbug. UGH.

Really hoping my patronus is a baby goat stampede.

Here we see two young women fighting over a robot.

A cool robot. It is wearing shades!

I like to think that he’s wearing sunglasses because he’s blind.
They saw him first… because he can’t see!

somniologist said: My little brother has recently been on a Nnendi Okorafor reading spree and he loves the fact that their are fantasy stories with people that represent him. As the person who told him about the author he recently came to me and asked were there any similar books with black male protagonists but sadly I couldn't think of any. I was wondering if anyone knew any that they could recommend?

weneeddiversebooks:

There’s not enough black characters in fantasy and science fiction. This is just a fact. Something we hope will change because there are no other genres that begs for diversity like fantasy and science fiction. I’m so glad your brother loves Nnendi Okorafor. If he has not read Ursula le Guin’s Earthsea series, that would be a great fantasy series to start him on. Not a lot of people realize this but Ged in Earthsea is a black protagonist! Don’t pay any attention to the whitewashed films.

There’s also Malorie Blackman’s Naughts & Crosses, NK Jemisin’s The Inheritance Trilogy (female black protagonist but there are so few black fantasies I have to include it - plus it’s brilliant), and also try David Anthony Durham’s Acacia trilogy.

And hopefully more tumblr folks will chime in with more recs in the notes.

Nancy Farm’s The Ear, The Eye, and the Arm is exciting and weird and fun and takes place in Zimbabwe.

Also, her House of the Scorpion is distopian sci-fi with a Latino protagonist! All the diversity!

“Even if you read this book 500 times, it has always the same plot line.”

Truth. Technically.
