Zimbabwean writer T.L. Huchu had wide acclaim as a literary writer before turning to fantasy with his latest, “The Library of the Dead,” which follows a young woman who can talk to the dead as she investigates a child’s disappearance in Glasgow’s magical underworld while drawing on Zimbabwean magic. A good introduction to the continent’s wide array of voices is the “AfroSF” series of anthologies, which collects some great writers, like South Africa’s Mandisi Nkomo, Uganda’s Dilman Dila (who is also active as a filmmaker), Gambia’s Biram Mboob and Nigeria’s Chinelo Onwualu. Onwualu was co-founder of Omenana, an online magazine that does incredible work publishing the new generation of African writers. And I picked Botswana author Tlotlo Tsamaase’s “The Silence of the Wilting Skin” last year as one of my top reads, so I won’t belabor the point, but I can’t wait to see where she goes next.
