In The Memory Librarian music, fashion, film and futurist icon Janelle MonA?e returns to the Afrofuturistic world of her critically acclaimed album, Dirty Computer, to explore how different threads of liberation ?_" queerness, race, gender plurality, love ?_" become tangled in a totalitarian landscape?_? and to discover costs of unravelling them. Whoever controls our memories controls the future. Janelle MonA?e and an incredible array of talented collaborating creators have written a collection of tales comprising the bold vision and powerful themes that have made MonA?e such a compelling and celebrated storyteller.A?Dirty Computer introduced a world in which thoughts ?_" as a means of self-conception ?_" could be controlled or erased by a select few. And whether human, A.I., or other, your life and sentience was dictated by those who?_Td convinced themselves they had the right to decide your fate. That was until Jane 57821 decided to remember and break free. Expanding from that mythos, these stories fully explore what it?_Ts like to live in such a totalitarian existence?_? and what it takes to get out of it. Building off the traditions of speculative writers such as Octavia Butler, Ted Chiang, Becky Chambers, and Nnedi Okorafor?_"and filled with the artistic genius and powerful themes that have made MonA?e a worldwide icon in the first place ?_" The Memory Librarian serves readers tales grounded in the human trials of identity expression, technology, and love, but also reaching through to the worlds of memory and time within, and the stakes and power that exists there.
