sbattle is an AFROFuturist and visionary who believes that human history and human future is converging now, in this century, at this moment. He is a time traveler who took the long route to the present -- year by year, hour by hour. Insane Messiah was written in the 1970s but closely reflects 2012 tech. The Rage of the Mamba are what we can expect when the extraterrestrial powers protecting our world reveal themselves to us and attack our enemies. sbattle uses his literary prowess like an ancient prophet who wields a magic staff to open a narrow path that we all must follow.
Four adult fables from an emerging African perspective are offered in this anthology. These are not traditional fairy tales. There are no talking spiders or trickster monkeys. You will grapple with jealous royal siblings, sensual warrior women, murderous demons and seductive monsters. This is fiction with a different face. This is the New Africa Movement in Literature. Not for children
The Black Fantastic appeals to all cultures. Sword and Soul shines a different light on Ancient Africa. Black Weird West exposes the powers of African magic in the 1800s America. A Yankee journalist awakens a Nubian demon the 20th century. African fairies, galactic slavers, demigods, mad scientists, and aliens are not what you would expect. Black speculative fiction is different. Read. Discover.

Bravo! Not a typical zombie story. It is about the life and death and life and death and ? of a walking dead. It is a biting satire into the flesh of human greed and generosity. The dead main character becomes more compassionate after he climbs out of his grave but unfortunately slips back into the cesspool that his former antics created. Each character, no manner how short their time on the stage was finely drawn. I would gladly pay the author for his work.
