About Suyi Davies Okungbowa
Suyi Davies Okungbowa is a Nigerian author of fantasy, science fiction and horror inspired by his West-African origins. His highly-anticipated debut, the godpunk fantasy novel David Mogo, Godhunter (Abaddon, 2019), was hailed as “the subgenre’s platonic deific ideal.” His epic fantasy trilogy, The Nameless Republic, is forthcoming from Orbit in 2021. His shorter fiction and essays have appeared internationally in periodicals like Tor.com, Lightspeed, Nightmare, Strange Horizons, Fireside, Podcastle, The Dark and anthologies like Year’s Best Science Fiction and Fantasy (Saga, 2020), A World of Horror (Dark Moon Books, 2018) and People of Colour Destroy Science Fiction (Lightspeed/John Joseph Adams, 2017). He has taught writing at the University of Arizona (where he completes his MFA in fiction) as well as spoken and lectured at various venues in the US and beyond, including schools, conferences, conventions and other institutions. He lives between Lagos, Nigeria and Tucson, Arizona. He is on Twitter at @IAmSuyiDavies and is @suyidavies everywhere else. Learn more at suyidavies.com.
