“Beauty and ingenuity beat perfection hands down, every time.”
Nalo Hopkinson, Sister Mine

“The heaviness of loss in her heart hadn't eased, but there was room there for humour, too.”
Nalo Hopkinson, Brown Girl in the Ring

“My friend Ian Hagemann, a regular at Wiscon, once said on a panel that when he reads science fiction futures that are full of white people and no one else, he wonders when the race war happened that wiped out the majority of the human race, and why the writer hasn’t mentioned such an important plot point.”
Nalo Hopkinson
