Nnedi Okorafor - African SunriseSubterranean Press has published the Fall 2012 edition of their Suberranean Press Magazine, which contain a rather magnificent novella by Nnedi Okorafor, called African Sunrise.

The story follows Phoenix, an experimental (post-?)human with special abilities/powers, created and modified as a test subject in Tower 7 by the 'Big Eye', all in the name of science and the various, not always verys salubrious uses it is being put to. It also talks about the meaning of 'home' and 'belonging' as well as the responsibilities that come with freedom.

The story can be read, for free, here on the Subterranean website - I'd suggest that you do so, but also that you purchase the magazine itself!
