Devoured and Adored

Wed 16 Nov 2022 - Filed under: Not a Journal., | Posted by: Gavin

Ayize Jama-Everett’s forthcoming final Liminal novel Heroes of an Unknown World is scheduled to receive a great review in the December 1&15 2022 double issue of Booklist and while I can’t quote the whole thing here, I’m happy to drop just these lines:

“A prescient examination of issues pressing hard upon our actual reality, Heroes of an Unknown World is a necessary addition to the genre and will be devoured and adored by the most hardcore of readers.” — Sal A. Joyce, Booklist

We’ve also begun setting up events, first will be at a favorite west coast spot, City Lights Books on Feb. 16th, with more to come.

2023 is going to be Ayize’s year! His next graphic novel, The Last Count of Monte Cristo, illustrated by Tristan Roach, is coming out from Abrams/Megascope in April — can’t wait to read that — and he’s also working on A Table of Our Own: A Conference and Documentary for Black professionals working in the Sacred plant medicine space.
