About the Author
Ayize Jama-Everett: Ayize Jama-Everett was born in 1974 and raised in Harlem, New York. Since then he has traveled extensively in Northern Africa, New Hampshire, and Northern California. He holds a Master's in Clinical Psychology and a Master's in Divinity. He teaches religion and psychology at Starr King School for the Ministry when he's not working as a school therapist at the College Preparatory School. When not educating, studying, or beating himself up for not writing enough, he's usually enjoying aged rums and practicing his aim.
"Ayize's imagination will mess with yours, and the world won't ever look quite the same again."
"The Liminal People has the pleasures of classic sf while being astonishingly contemporary and savvy."
--Maureen F. McHugh
"Ayize Jama-Everett has brewed a voodoo cauldron of Sci-Fi, Romance, Crime, and Superhero Comic, to provide us with a true gestalt of understanding, offering us both a new definition of "family" and a world view on the universality of human conduct. The Liminal People--as obviously intended--will draw different reactions from different readers. But none of them will stop reading until its cataclysmic ending."
--Andrew Vachss "Ayize's imagination will mess with yours, and the world won't ever look quite the same again."
--Nalo Hopkinson "The Liminal People has the pleasures of classic sf while being astonishingly contemporary and savvy."
--Maureen F. McHugh "Fast and sleek and powerful--a skillful and unique mix of supernatural adventure and lived-in, persuasive, often moving noir."
--Felix Gilman, author of The Half-Made World
