Nalo Hopkinson’s excellent FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS is a collection to be loved
In the BOOK RIOT video Black Bi & Lesbian Books for Black History Month and F/F February video, Danika Ellis mentions the Nalo Hopkinson titles The Salt Roads and FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS.
THINGS AS THEY ARE includes FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS in their January reading round-up.
I’m reading Nalo Hopkinson’s collection, FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS, which is excellent but the stories are very intense, so I’m taking it slow!
Michaela Stephen at ON THE DANFORTH places Hopkinson among 5 Canadian Authors Who are Breaking the Boundaries of Genre Fiction.
Although Nalo Hopkinson is well known to many Science Fiction readers after publishing six novels and two short story collections, my favourite will always be her first novel, Brown Girl in the Ring (Warner Aspect). Set in Toronto in a dystopic future, Hopkinson blends Caribbean folklore and cyberpunk elements to show the strength of three generations of women. For those new to genre fiction, Nalo Hopkinson’s novels are a great place to start.
