South African Writers and Publishers of Speculative Fiction

If the big (or should that be *traditional*) publishers in South Africa are to be believed, there aren't any South African Speculative Fiction writers. Or, rather, there is one - Lauren Beukes. And while Lauren is an amazing ambassador and an incredible writer (and storyteller), it's easy to focus just on her and her work without seeing who else is making waves in the world of Genre writing and publishing. :-)

With this page I'll make sure you know who is writing -and publishing- Speculative Fiction in South Africa. By SpecFic I mean Science Fiction, Horror, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance, Steampunk, Historical Fantasy, etc. etc. etc. In short, anything that is supremely cool and imaginative. ;-)
