One of the Best

Heroes of an Unknown World cover After yesterday’s quote from Elwin on Ayize Jama-Everett’s Heroes of an Unknown World, I’m fired up to say we received another excellent advance quote this time from John Jennings, bestselling graphic novel illustrator (Kindred, After the Rain, Parable of the Sower), professor, author,curator, Harvard Fellow, and all-around champion of Black culture.

Heroes is the fourth and final of Ayize’s Liminal novels. He self-published the first one, The Liminal People, in 2009 and Nalo Hopkinson suggested he send it out way. We published our edition in 2012 and then two more in quick succession in 2015. Now that the series is complete with Heroes — where a found family of Black superheroes has one last chance to save the world — it’s time to make some noise and celebrate the series, the stories, and the writer.

All 4 novels are downloadable by reviewers and booksellers on Edelweiss — and don’t ask me why but Am*zon has the first book on super sale at $1.99.

So here’s hoping we can get some momentum going with a little bit of Tuesday joy as we build up toward the pub date in February:

“Ayize Jama-Everett is a towering talent and one of the best genre-writers working today. His final installment of his masterfully told Liminal Series; HEROES OF AN UNKNOWN WORLD is a taut, textured feast for the minds of any ravenous reader who’s looking for something fresh and exciting to experience.”
