BGN Comic Review: Mister Miracle Issue 1

By Kai Charles Mister Miracle and Barda are two characters dear to my heart. I wasn’t really sure if I would give this book a try because I really haven’t enjoyed many of the Rebirth books. However “Mister Miracle” isn’t branded as a Rebirth title, so many of the elements that fans attribute to the...

BGN Book Review: ‘Blackass’

Sometimes, you speak of novels blurring the genres when sci-fi or fantasy is in the background. Blackass definitely blurs them--very much. The fantasy element is mainly the starting point to the story and doesn't come back much. But as the novel has been shortlisted for a Nommo Award, it felt only right that having...

BGN Book Review: ‘Prey of Gods’

You don't judge a book by its cover. Except, in reality, you often pick a book by its cover. The Prey of Gods' cover was what instantly drew me: it's beautiful and invites curiosity about the story. The novel wasn't such an instant hit with me, but it's a great blend of sci-fi and...

Meet Tomi Adeyemi, the author of ‘Children of Blood and Bone’

I first heard about Tomi after news broke about her record breaking movie deal. At 23 years old, Tomi landed one of the biggest YA debut novel publishing deals ever for her upcoming novel, Children of Blood and Bone. Listen, the book isn't due to come out until 2018, and there is already a...

BGN Book Review: ‘Gemsigns’

®Evolution is a trilogy of sci-fi thrillers that reads as quite prophetic in our current world. It reads as a thinly veiled metaphor for racism with a pace and plot that will certainly please fans of the genre. Gemsigns (2013) is the first book, followed by Binary (2014) and Regeneration (2015). Humanity has been decimated by...
