Ex Marginalia

The Carl Brandon Society and Hydra House Books  have partnered on a literary project to spotlight speculative fiction writers whose voices need to be up front and center stage.

Chinelo OnwualuEx Marginalia is a book of essays about writing by authors who will not and cannot remain in the margins. Scheduled for publication in Fall/Winter 2022, the nonfiction collection is edited by multiple award-nominated author, editor, and 2014 Octavia E. Butler scholar Chinelo Onwualu. The book benefits from Onwualu’s international literary connections and her editorial expertise as the nonfiction editor and co-founder of Anathema: Spec from the Margins.
