AfroCyberPunk is here to explore the possibilities of African science fiction and to expose it’s immense creative potential to the world. For too long, science fiction has failed to make a presence in African literature, confining African creativity to the present and past.
Science fiction has had significant impact on the technological development of the industrialized societies, and there is no reason why it cannot do the same for Africa. Wherever in the world you find yourself, my intention is to get you thinking about the direction in which Africa is heading and use this as a lens to alter your perspective of the continent today.
AfroCyberPunk was created by myself, Jonathan Dotse (Doe-chay), a student at Ashesi University College and science-fiction writer living in Accra, Ghana. I’m currently working on my debut novel, a cyberpunk mystery/thriller set in the sprawling metropolis of Accra in the middle of the 21st century.
