How Long ‘Til Black Future Month? By N.K. Jemisin

Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars


How Long ‘Til Black Future Month? is a series of unrelated short stories. Each one connects to themes of what it means to be human, rewriting history, and taking risks for survival, curiosity, love, and revenge. ⁠


Jemisin’s stories varied so much that I found myself gushing over one while confused by another. The entire book holds her thoughtful writing style but, somehow, every character felt unique. The stories are in first person so I often felt as though I leapt into a new life at the beginning of every tale. It’s amazing that Jemisin was able to fit such full stories in less than 20 pages (sometimes just four)! ⁠


I definitely recommend this book! When I first started it, I wasn’t sure about it because I’m not a huge Sci-Fi/Fantasy fan usually. This book made me question that. I love Jemisin’s imagination and I think you will, too.
