About the Author

N. K. Jemisin is the first author in the genre's history to win three consecutive Best Novel Hugo Awards, all for her Broken Earth trilogy. Her work has also won the Nebula, Locus, and Goodreads Choice Awards. She is currently a reviewer for the New York Times Book Review, and she has been an instructor for the Clarion and Clarion West writing workshops. In her spare time she is a gamer and gardener, and she is also single-handedly responsible for saving the world from King Ozzymandias, her dangerously intelligent ginger cat, and his phenomenally destructive sidekick Magpie.

Reviews

"There are so many things in How Long 'Til Black Future Month-from firebirds to Megacops, from truffles to hurricanes, from utopias (maybe) to civil rights marches-that it's impossible to describe. Except to say that every single story here is riveting, provocative, and remarkable. An extraordinary story collection from an extraordinary writer!"--Connie Willis, Hugo and Nebula Award winner
"Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold."--Entertainment Weekly
"Powerful and mind-expanding...Jemisin pushes boundaries, experiments with format and theme, and challenges expectations."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"[E]loquently develops a series of passionately felt themes... one of speculative fiction's most thoughtful and exciting writers."--Kirkus (starred review)
"These stories are wonderful. In worlds both invariably cruel and brilliantly imagined, heroism thrives in the margins."--Nicky Drayden, author of The Prey of Gods
"The most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation... Jemisin seems able to do just about everything."--New York Times
"Jemisin's phenomenal success has been something like an earthquake ripping through the traditional order of fantasy itself."--New York/Vulture
"Marvelous and wide-ranging."--Los Angeles Times
"N. K. Jemisin is a powerhouse of speculative fiction. So, obviously, you need to read this new short story collection."--Bustle
"Each of the [stories] is masterfully written and beautifully imagined, making the book difficult to put down...Anyone who appreciates Jemisin's work, speculative fiction, or simply the art of the short story shouldn't miss this collection."--BookPage
"Established fans of Jemisin's work and general fantasy and sf readers alike should check out this collection of diverse and exciting new speculative fiction."--Booklist
"The true breadth of [Jemisin's] talent ... comes through to grand effect in her first collection of short fiction... Jemisin is an essential voice in modern-day SFF."--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
"The most critically acclaimed author in contemporary science fiction and fantasy."--GQ
"One line from [Jemisin's introduction] has tattooed itself on my mind, a sort of manifesto for her ongoing work and all the fiction I love: 'Now I am bolder, and angrier, and more joyful.' I felt, after reading these stories, that I was too."--NPR Books
"Read her books-they're probably better than whatever else you were going to read next."--Literary Hub
"Whether she's exploring alien life forms or political machinations, self-sacrifice or monsters in New Orleans, Jemisin's characters are boldly drawn, complex, and so engaging. This is a great gift for any long-time fan and a solid introduction to her work for the curious, and I highly recommend you grab yourself the gorgeous hardcover version."--Book Riot/Swords & Spaceships
"Nora Jemisin is a writer of uncanny gifts who is to a moral certainty one of the five best we have right now."--Sci-Fi
"Energizing in the way the best science fiction aims to be, forcing readers to look back on the 'real' world with new and eager eyes."--Shelf Awareness
(starred review)
"Jemisin... is a writer of uncanny gifts who is to a moral certainty one of the five best we have right now. ... How inadequate these brief synopses are to convey the sheet beauty to be found in these stories."--Sci-Fi
Jemisin's body of work already spans an extraordinary and "astonishing terrain. Science fiction and fantasy have always been the genres of my heart, and Jemisin is an absolute master. Like Ursula K. Le Guin, she is a visionary who shows us our world by remaking it in stories."--Kelly Link
"Jemisin's stories are discerning, thought-provoking, and beautifully crafted, showcasing a master at work."--Pen America
"A brilliant example of how we in the present are making the future with our actions and how the future may exist in our past... What is also evident in this short story collection is that Ms. Jemisin can write anything. Her prose, sometimes pulsing, encourages you to read at different tempos as if she is conducting an orchestra. Slow moving tension and suspense make you fearful, but then entices you into reading the next sentence. Lush descriptive passages conjure cinematic vistas."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
