Ms. Thomas,
This isn't so much a comment as it is a heads up and thank you.

I discuss your book "Dark Matter: A Century of Speculative Fiction from the African Diaspora," in my latest DeFlip Side radio show, "Science Fiction in Black," which celebrates Black History Month by charting the milestones of black achievement and representation in the SF&F genres.

Needless to say, your book was an enormous help, and I have provided a link to it on my blog. I'd love to have your thoughts on the segment if you'd like to weigh in. You can listen to the show at

Whether you do so or not, I just wanted to thank you for providing the only reference work I was able to find on the subject.

Best of luck with your future writing projects.

Christopher DeFilippis

Dear Christopher,

Thanks so much for the heads up and sharing the info about your show! It is very exciting to have the work by these amazing writers still being discussed over ten years after Warner published the anthology. I had hoped readers would enjoy it as much as I did, and it's been wonderful seeing all of the new work that's out. Keep me posted on your latest programs!

All Best,
