In June, the BBC program Your World showcased science fiction in Africa in the episode “Is Science Fiction Coming to Africa?”. I finally listened to the downloadable version today and enjoyed it very much. Science fiction’s unmatched role in exploring human lives and our intersection with philosophy and technology seems perfectly suited to exposing vast ranges of experiences that occur in Africa. I am often dismayed that global science fiction doesn’t penetrate markets here, or is not translated into English at all. The exposure the broadcast offers for African science fiction is valuable and I hope it’s a small push to bring more works to us.
