1 Share

I have a new life goal and that is to race a couple of laps around the Goodwood Circuit in something old and fast. After, of course, I get better at driving. And racing. And gain more courage. Like, a ton more courage.

I need USB-C cables to become cheaper, but basically, if it's not "the good one", it gets thrown in the garbage. Monoprice has them for too cheap to worry about them.

And then there's that weird proprietary cable I've had since like 2004 that looks at a glance like micro USB but isn't, so I get halfway across the country for my vacation with no way to charge anything at all and have to buy spares at the airport for exorbitant prices.

The 43-year-old writer who won the 2016 Hugo award (the Oscars of the sci-fi world) for best novella doesn’t look like much of a geek. Yes, she wears oversized glasses, but Okorafor’s specs are trendy, royal-blue Cat-Eyes, not wiry aviators. And, crucially, she happens to be a black woman.

The Nigerian-American’s success has been applauded as a victory by a community that has long cheered her on from the margins. So when she tweeted on 11 August that she was working on her first project with the comic publisher Marvel, fans were thrilled. (“A Marvel story. Written by a Nigerian woman. Set in Lagos. Superhero’s name: NGOZI. What a time to be alive,” wrote one fan on Twitter) And with a novel, Who Fears Death, to be adapted for TV by HBO (George RR Martin is its executive producer) Okorafor is about to go from the solitary geek reference-point for young African women to everybody’s favourite new sci-fi writer.
