From the Editor

One of my colleagues recently said that J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit is most readers’ gateway to epic fantasy, and I think I have to agree with him. I remember my mother kept a beat-up paperback of the book, likely printed in the ’60s, in our guest bedroom—and that was my introduction to the genre as a young child.

Since then, I’ve been a fan—and so has African author C. T. Rwizi. One day, he thought to himself, Why can’t I write my own story, with people who look more like me, and come from a place more like mine? In his debut, Scarlet Odyssey, he’s brought together everything we love about epic fantasy—a hero’s journey and the friends and monsters they meet on their quest through mythical lands—with characters and a magic system unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Through plains and jungles reminiscent of eastern and southern Africa, in a world where a male mystic rises despite society expecting men to become warriors while magic is reserved for women, Rwizi sends us on a voyage. And with a major revelation at the end that’ll make you want to go back and start all over again, this book will transport you from your reality for a spell.

Editorial Reviews


An Amazon Best Book of the Month: Science Fiction & Fantasy

“Rwizi says he based his unique science fiction and worldly tale on myths and stories he heard growing up in Swaziland…Because Rwizi combines technology, science fiction and myth, the novel is like a video game filled with action and tension…Rwizi delivers a fast-paced story with vivid images of sub-Saharan Africa, lacing Salo’s epic journey with flash, violence and drama, and a love story.” —Authorlink

“Rwizi’s debut is noteworthy for its African-inspired setting.” Library Journal

“It’s a thrilling, fanciful debut, crammed full of imaginative world-building and excellent dialogue.” RevolutionsSF

“Raised in Swaziland and Zimbabwe but now residing in South Africa, C.T. Rwizi is a remarkable new talent. He deftly juggles five very different protagonists, establishes a vast yet intricate new magical system unlike anything else I’ve ever seen, and unfolds stories scattered across the distant past, the chaotic present, and in entirely different planes of existence.” —

“C. T. Rwizi…builds a rich setting by combining recognizable aspects of his home with deft and fantastical world-building.” Medium

About the Author

Debut author C. T. Rwizi was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in Swaziland, finished high school in Costa Rica, and got a BA in government at Dartmouth College in the United States. He currently lives in South Africa with his family, and enjoys playing video games, taking long runs, and spending way too much time lurking on Reddit. He is a self-professed lover of synthwave.
