Nnedi Okorafor’s Who Fears Death Optioned by HBO

Nnedi Okorafor’s 2011 World Fantasy Award-winning novel, Who Fears Death, has been optioned as a television series by HBO and is in the early stages of adaptation and development. Game of Thrones’s George R.R. Martin is involved as an executive producer. Martin made it clear on his blog that he will be only one executive producer among many.

The real story is the novel. Who Fears Death is set in post-apocalyptic Africa. Its story follows a young woman named Onyesonwu as she grows into her magical powers against a background of tribal conflict, slavery, rape, and an unknown force rising against her.

Who Fears Death is Ms. Okorafor’s first adult novel. May it also be one among many.
