Product Details


Praise for Convergence Problems

“A jaw-dropping collection….Beautiful, vibrant, and electrifying, this has the makings of a modern classic.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Written with an emotional economy few storytellers can master….A fascinating and riveting exploration of what the future may hold—for better or worse.” —Kirkus

“Deftly entwining his Nigerian culture with sf and Afrofuturism, Talabi uses each story to analyze Africa’s rapidly evolving relationship with technology. For fans of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian works and P. Djèlí Clark’s speculative fiction, Convergence Problems provides an Afrocentric sf narrative that is sure to captivate.” —Raychel Bennet, Booklist (starred review) 

“Wole Talabi’s Africanfuturist collection (sixteen stories, three of which are brand-new) recontextualizes folklore within mostly sci-fi trappings.” —Natalie Zutter, LitHub

Wole Talabi is a brilliant short fiction writer.” —Alex Jennings, author of The Ballad of Perilous Graves

“These are amazing narratives which show assiduous reflection on science, emotion, mysticism, and philosophy…each story is prose that gently tickles the forebrain. Recommended.” —Tade Thompson, author of Rosewater

A high octane thriller that is simply unputdownable. This remarkable debut rocked my world.” —T. L. Huchu, author of The Library of the Dead

Fast and sharp as talons.” —Lauren Beukes, author of The Shining Girls and Broken Monsters

Beautiful, vibrant, and electrifying, this has the makings of a modern classic.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
