Omenana Magazine has released its 27th issue, which offers a range of genres including science fiction, magical realism, and even horror, to satisfy all kinds of readers

Omenana Magazine is Africa’s leading speculative fiction magazine published quarterly by Seven Hills Media. Founded in 2014 by Mazi Nwonwu, Omenana derives its name from the Igbo word which means “tradition.” The magazine publishes speculative fiction by writers from Africa and the African diaspora and has published big names like Tochi Onyebuchi, Tendai Huchu, and Chikodili Emelumadu.

The newest issue collects work from five writers across the African continent. The contributors include Adesire Tamilore, Mseli Ngoma, Tunmise Onifade, Ogheneyome O, and Hannu Afere.

We love the stunning cover image featuring a cyborg holding a baby in her arms while strangling a human woman holding a bat. Although the cover is an homage to Issue 5 and has already been published previously, the visual graphic is timeless indeed.

The latest issue is edited by the Omenana team – Mazi Nwonwu, Chinelo Onwualu, and Iquo DianaAbasi. It features works of magical realism, fantasy, Afrofuturism, science fiction, and even horror.
