    I am reading her novel Midnight Robber right now. It is truly fascinating. Thick curly haired, cocoa brown Tan Tan is exiled with her beloved yet sinister father Antonio on a prison planet. The rich Caribbean flavor is this exciting sci-fi adventure novel is unmistakable.

    Buy it at Overstanding University which also houses the Consciousness Raising class recordings of our own brotha oldsoul.

    Thanks for the names. I will look them up at amazon and add them to Overstanding. There are a lot of great writers out there. Are you also familiar with Samuel Delaney? His Babel 17 is fantastic.

    It just occurred to me Jewell Rhodes was my teacher at Cal State Northridge. She taught science fiction.
