Nalo Hopkinson, author of FALLING IN LOVE WITH HOMINIDS and fellow writers Nnedi Okorafor, and Jewelle Gomez killed on their panel on at the 2016 Black Comix Arts Festival (BCAF). The fun-filled trio talked about monsters that appear in their work, the writing process, Afrofuturism, and the futures of African American and African speculative-fiction.

Luckily for us, the San Francisco Public Library, who hosted the discussion in coordination with the BCAF, had the foresight to record the panel.
