Midnight Robber


It's been way too long since I read a book by Hopkinson. I decided to read a few of hers this year because she was named a Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master. It's an award given by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, the SFWA. This is the third book of hers I've read now and it's terrific. The other two I read, The Salt Roads and Brown Girl in the Ring were also outstanding. With outstanding prose written in pidgin English and tackling issues like incest and sexual abuse, she crafted an amazing novel. It's based on Caribbean folklore and traditions and it's set on a planet in the future. And she pulls it off spectacularly. This book was nominated for multiple awards including the Hugo and Nebula about twenty years ago.
