Michael A. Gonzales Puts a Spotlight on Out of Print Black Authors

Michael A. Gonzales

Hi friends,

We’ve seen such a tremendous response to our episode about the life and short stories of Diane Oliver, whose life was tragically cut short at age 22.

After Deesha Philyaw and Dawnie Walton’s conversation about her stories, we decided to go even deeper with the writer who first introduced us to her work, Michael A. Gonzales.

On our latest episode of the Ursa Short Fiction podcast, Gonzales tells us how he first discovered Diane Oliver’s stories, and how he began researching other Black authors whose work had gone unrecognized or had gone out of print.

Get the full transcript and episode reading list here. We can’t wait for you to give it a listen.
