Welcome to the site of Harambee K. Grey-Sun, speculative fiction writer and poet.
The words best describing my fiction are dark and weird. I use elements of fantasy, horror, noir, and science fiction to spin bizarre, mind-bending, sometimes challenging, and occasionally blasphemous tales. The meanings of identity, love, and life; the nature of consciousness, humankind, and God–these are some of my themes. Most stories fall within one or more of the following subgenres: Slipstream, Occult/Supernatural, Superhero, Metaphysical Fantasy, and–of course–Weird Fiction.
Most of my poems are narratives, either pieces of a larger story (like the poems in Spring’s Fall) or short stories in verse (like some of the poems in Wine Songs). I’m always experimenting with styles and subject matters, but I never experiment simply for the sake of experimenting. When I write, I write for an ideal audience: readers who crave poems that incorporate any and every wordplaying trick (rhyme, alliteration, puns, etc.) in the service of telling an entertaining story.
My poetry has appeared in a handful of literary journals, including CrossConnect, Epicenter, RiverSedge, the South Carolina Review, and the Wisconsin Review. I am also an alumnus of the Community of Writers at Squaw Valley.
