Caribbean Beat Magazine interviews Nalo Hopkinson, RSA Garcia, Karen Lord, and me!

Caribbean Beat Magazine is the in-flight magazine of Caribbean Airlines, and they recently did profiles of me, Nalo Hopkinson, Karen Lord and RSA Garcia and our writing:

How is speculative fiction specifically relevant to the Caribbean?

We have to have a literature that envisions ourselves in the future. If we don’t have that, then we force ourselves to live only in the present. There’s nothing wrong with the present, but we have to have something we’re working towards, or that we’re warning ourselves away from. That’s what science fiction can serve as.
