Minister Faust

Meet Minister Faust at a Q&A session and book signing to follow his readings.

Minister Faust is a long-time community activist, writer, journalist, broadcaster, public speaker and martial artist. A maverick novelist increasingly described as one of the finest voices of his generation, Faust refers to his sub-genre of science fiction writing as Imhotep-Hop: an Africentric literature that draws from myriad ancient African civilizations, explores present realities, and imagines a future in which people struggle not only for justice, but for the stars. His web page is http://www.ministerfaust.com.
