Marlon James Working on ‘African ‘Game of Thrones’

Marlon James, author of A Brief History of Seven Killings, is ready for more inclusion and representation in the myriad worlds of fantasy novels.

The Booker Prize-winning author recently told Man of the World he’ll be “geeking the fuck out” for his next book, Black Leopard, Red Wolf, which he describes as “an African Game of Thrones.” James told the magazine:

We have witches, we have demons, we have goblins, we have mad kings. We have stories of royal succession that would put Wolf Hall to share. We beat the Tudors two times over.”
