Fantasy Required Readings
33 A Guide to the Fruits of Hawai’i
Alaya Dawn Johnson
Instructor Note: Johnson, young and mixed race, likes to push readers’ expectations of what people of color are “supposed” to write. Ambiguous and disturbing, she brings and element of reality into her vampire dystopia and makes us wonder, did her protagonist win or lose in this story?
Librarian Note: Originally published in the July/August 2014 issue of the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction p.231 – 255.
