The African Speculative Fiction Society (ASFS) has announced  the winners of the 2020 Nommo Awards. The winners were revealed in a presentation made on 25th October by Mame Bougouma Diene, Setor Fiadzigbey, Chinelo Onwualu, and Tade Thompson at Ake Festival.

The Nommo Awards recognizes the finest fantasy or science fiction works by African writers. The winners are voted on by the members of the African Speculative Fiction Society. The awards are given in four categories: Best Novel ($1000), Best Novella ($500), Best Short Story ($500), and Best Comic or Graphic Novel ($1000).

One of the highlights of this year’s list of winners is Wole Talabi winning the Best Speculative Novella category for the story “Incompleteness Theories.” Talabi’s win comes barely two weeks after his edited collection Africanfuturism: An Anthology was published by Brittle Paper. We are beyond thrilled!
