Mame Bougoma Diene - Another Day in the DesertLet me point you at a fascinating gem over on Escape Pod - a short story by Mame Bougouma Diene titled Another Day in the Desert.


This is available to you both to read, and as a podcast narrated by Halima Salah.

As Escape Pod put it:
Mame Bougouma Diene is a Senegalese American humanitarian living in Brooklyn, NY with a fondness for tattoos, progressive metal and policy analysis. He is the Francophone/US spokesperson for the African Speculative Fiction Society. Another Day in the Desert is a prequel to “Ogotemmeli’s Song” released [...] in AfroSFv3, and also a prequel to “Apes and Satellites” published by Brittle Paper in 2017.

The picture on the right is from the Escape Pod profile of the Narrator of the podcast, Halima Salah.
