Mnister Faust
Minister Faust is the Kindred Award-winning author of Shrinking the Heroes (formerly titled From the Notebooks of Doctor Brain), the cult-hit The Coyote Kings, Book One: Space-Age Bachelor Pad, and the acclaimed novel, The Alchemists of Kush. For 23 years he was Canada's leading Africentric community broadcaster as host of Africentric Radio (formerly The Terrordome). He taught high school and junior high for 10 years and continues to teach creative writing to youth and adults, including through venues such as Shared Worlds in Spartanburg, SC, and Clarion West in Seattle. He's lectured on his work at the Science Fiction Research Association conference in Detroit and at Georgia Tech in Atlanta. He describes his sub-genre of Afrofuturism as “Imhotep-Hop,” an Africentric literature referencing ancient African civilizations while aiming at a Pan-African technological future. The story, “The Belly of the Crocodile,” ties into The Alchemists of Kush. His website is www.ministerfaust.com.
