Black Women in Horror: Sycorax’s Daughters

Featured

SycoraxSo geeked that my short story “Kim” has found a home in the black women horror anthology Sycorax’s Daughters. Get your copy here.

So just who are Sycorax’s daughters? The title is taken from Shakespeare’s play The Tempest. Sycorax is an Algerian sorceress who is banished to a remote island. She gives birth to Caliban, a half-human monster. By the time the story begins, Sycorax is long dead by Prospero’s hands. Although silenced, she still shapes the characters’ perceptions of power and gender.
