Fourteen writers and fourteen artists were chosen to express their interpretation of this new genre, resulting in a book that is as exciting to view as it is to read. Griots is edited by Charles R. Saunders, author of Imaro and creator of Sword and Soul, and Milton Davis, owner of MVmedia, LLC and author of three sword and soul novels.
Writers included in Griots are Minister Faust, Geoffrey Thorne, Carole McDonnell, Valjeanne Jeffers and Ronald T. Jones, among others. Artists include Natiq Jalil, Luke McDonnell, Winston Blakely, Stan Weaver, Jr., Wanye Parker and Paul Davey.
Griots will make its official debut Saturday, August 20, 2011 at Onyx Con 3, which takes place at the Southwest Arts Center, 915 New Hope Road, Atlanta, GA 30331.
