When news broke yesterday that HBO had optioned Nnedi Okorafor's Who Fears Death as a television series and that George R.R. Martin was set to serve as an executive producer, more than a few eyebrows were raised for a couple of different reasons.
We've known for some time that Nnedi Okorafor's World Fantasy Award-winning novel Who Fears Death was being adapted into a live action project, but the author took to her Facebook page late last night to share news about where we can eventually expect to see it.
Ten years ago, Hugo Award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor was getting ready to publish her second novel. She was thrilled to share her latest work with the world, which envisioned an African country after an apocalypse, centred around a black protagonist. Then she saw her book's cover.
We are thrilled to share the exclusive first excerpt from author Nnedi Okorafor's Binti: Home, the sequel to her coming-of-age tale Binti, which won Hugo and Nebula Awards for Best Novella this year. It picks up a year after the first story ended, and raises the stakes for its two main characters.
