Editorial Reviews

Review

"Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality. Prepare to fall in love with Binti." ―Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling author of American Gods

"The prose is vivid and unadorned, the pacing strong, and the novella as a whole, deeply compelling. I enjoyed it. I hope Okorafor writes more." ―Locus

PRAISE FOR
BINTI: HOME

"Okorafor’s writing is wonderful, and the details of her world-building ― including Binti’s rich culture of origin, living spaceships, and maths that reads almost like music ― are complex and fascinating" ―Veronica Roth

"Okorafor's writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in
Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy." ―NPR

"[
Binti: Home] opens up Binti's tale in astonishing ways, while provocatively exploring questions of identity and kinship." ―The Chicago Tribune

"Nnedi Okorafor's imagination and worldbuilding are unparalleled, as are the heartfelt emotional struggles she creates." ―Jim C. Hines, author of
Blood of Heroes and the Goblin Quest trilogy

PRAISE FOR
BINTI AND NNEDI OKORAFOR

"Binti is a supreme read about a sexy, edgy Afropolitan in space! It's a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!"―Wanuri Kahiu, award winning Kenyan film director of
Pumzi and From a Whisper

"There's more vivid imagination in a page of Nnedi Okorafor's work than in whole volumes of ordinary fantasy epics." ― Ursula Le Guin

"Okorafor's impressive inventiveness never flags." ― Gary K. Wolfe on
Lagoon
