  1. Banished from the heavens for falling in love with one of the creatures she was tasked to protect, Shange roams East Africa in human form with her lover Mijoga, who is imprisoned on the body of a lion. Together they serve the whims of the Spirits hoping to one day earn their freedom to love each other as mortals. Fallen is a collection of stories chronicling their adventures accented with amazing illustrations by Kristopher Michael Mosby. Milton Davis takes the best elements of the Sword & Sorcery genre and does away with the chaff, resulting in a collection that delivers four stories that are pure excitement. Set in the world of Changa’s Safari, Fallen puts the sorcery into Sword & Soul, pitting the hero, Shangé and her lion familiar Mijoga against the most sinister evils that Africa has to offer.'-Steve Rosenstein, Microphones of Madness Order your e-book today!

  2. One hundred years after the Collapse violence still rages across the region once known as Georgia. Warlords fight for control with deadly mercenaries known as Gunmen, and Moses Prichard is one of the best. Tired of the constant violence he finds solace within the walls of Newlanta, a city struggling to establish an island of peace amidst the chaos. But now the city is threatened by a powerful warlord Moses once served and he is forced to strap on his guns. However, this time he’s fighting for his own reasons. Gunman’s Peace, first novel of an action-packed series by Milton Davis, takes place in a post-apocalyptic world struggling to build a better future by ridding itself of the evils of the past. Gunman’s Peace is my flavor of post-apocalyptic fantasy. Moses Pritchard, hero in charge, is noble enough to make you root for him and bad enough to keep villains on their toes―if they survive at all. An added bonus were the plot twists that kept me on the edge of my seat. Gunman’s Peace is a wild ride readers won’t want to miss. -Valjeanne Jeffers, author of the Mona Livelong and Immortal series Milton Davis, storyteller extraordinaire, brings the excitement and appeal he pours into Sword and Soul into a post-apocalyptic milieu. Into that dire setting he introduces a hero as deadly in the use of weapons, as he is determined to channel his lethal skills toward a constructive goal. Gunman's Peace is an action-packed joyride through the harsh, dust choked grime of a world slowly and painstakingly clawing its way back to civilization. This book is a must-read adventure! -Ronald Jones, author of Extraction and Warriors of the Four Worlds Gunman's Peace Paperback Preorder Gunman's Peace e-book preorder

  8. The City. No one knows how it began or when it will end. No one knows how we came to be here, 20 million souls, 1500 different species all crammed together in plascrete and biosteel. No one's been in or out of the city in 20 centuries. Some have their theories why, some don't care. But no matter whom you are, or what you are, you have a story, don't you? The trick is finding someone who cares to listen...' -Knowledge Lateef, Street Priest The City anthology is a unique creation. It’s a concept anthology, a collection of stories where eighteen different authors share their vision of a single idea. It’s Cyberfunk, cyberpunk stories that play with future concepts from an African/African American perspective. Most of all it’s engaging, exciting, thought provoking and fun. Like the inhabitants, the City is perceived in various ways by the various writers. Some stories intersect, some diverge, but they all entertain. The result is a journey into a unique world described by unique and engaging voices. Buy your copy today from MVmedia today! The City: A Cyberfunk Anthology

  11. Yep. Balogun is just as if not more prolific than me.
  12. I'm currently reading A Plague of Shadows by Gerald Coleman. It's the second book in his 'The Three Gifts' series, sword and soul epic fantasy written in a style similar to Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time. It centers around his character Bantu and his private army known as The People's Company. Very good epic fantasy and a dense read. A Plague of Shadows

Saunders storms back onto the literary scene with an new epic fantasy sure to become a classic. Matile Mala, once the most powerful empire in the black continent of Abengoni, is slipping slowly into decadence, and becoming more and more vulnerable to aggression from the nations and tribes it once dominated. In the capital, Khambawe, ancient rituals endure, dominated by dreams and delusions. As Tiyana, who is both priestess and princess, conducts one such ceremony, known as First Calling, the rite is disrupted by the arrival of a half-wrecked ship from Fiadol, a far-distant land across the sea that is almost forgotten by the Matile. Led by a Seer called Kyroun, the pale-skinned people on the ship seek refuge among the Matile.But the Matile themselves are in need of aid, as they soon come under attack from their ancient enemies, the Uloans, who have flourished while the Matile waned. Along with her father – the High Priest Gebrem –Tiyana marshals the waning forces of Matile magic in conjunction with the powerful new sorcery wielded by Kyroun and his followers in an effort to forestall the threat of imminent annihilation.As the Matile and Uloans clash, other foes of the fading empire wait on the sidelines, like vultures circling a battlefield.

  19. Hey y'all! A few years ago I joined AALBC in order expose my writing to more black readers. After falling off a few years, I'm back. Black Speculative Fiction, or what many call Afrofuturism these days, has been growing steadily during that time, so much so that many of the recent winners of such prestigious scifi and fantasy awards such as the Hugo and Nebula have been black writers, specifically black female writers. And with the release of Black Panther in February, many black readers have been asking where they can find books with the same feel as the movie. It's my hope to expose you to such books and the authors who write them. I hope that eventually AALBC will add categories for such books and writers, but that's down the road. I'm excited, and I know you'll like what you see. Stay tuned!
  20. Atlanta. ATL. The Rising Phoenix. The City too Busy to Hate. The Black Mecca. Capital of the Deep South. There, between flitting shadows and full moons, exists another world filled with dark creatures, demons, and immortals. Only a thin veil separates the Atlanta you know from this mysterious realm. Nine brave authors risk it all to reveal the crossroads of Southern charm and the Black Fantastic. Y'all ready? Milton Davis and MVMedia have done it again! Terminus is a one of a kind, powerful, and engaging look into the hidden wonders of Atlanta, GA. Known the world over as “HOTlanta,” the site of the 1996 Olympics, and the home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Terminus takes its readers on a journey underneath and in between these historic identifiers. Upon reading this anthology, we are riveted by the possibility that monsters, magical powers, and African folklore inhabit the streets of Atlanta as we see the city through the expansive imaginations of this volume’s talented authors. Terminus is an ambitious book filled with narrative twists and turns that leaves you wanting more! Clint Fluker, PhD Emory Center for Digital Scholarship In the end, it becomes obvious that it doesn’t matter what country, culture or colour with which you identify – this is a lively anthology with some powerful moments and some wry laughs vying for your attention.

He tells the tale, with its large cast of sharply drawn characters and complex history, in a wonderfully spare and fast-paced style that doesn't waste time getting to where it's going. I can't wait for the next book." --Fletcher Vredenburgh, Sword and Sorcery Blogspot You can purchase Abengoni: First Calling at www.mvmediaatl.com. It is also available via Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble or wherever books are sold.
