Author Nnedi Okorafor announced on Twitter Monday that HBO has optioned her award-winning novel Who Fears Death for a TV adaptation. Most interestingly of all, Okorafor added that Game of Thrones mastermind George R.R. Martin is also involved.


The 2010 novel takes place in a post-apocalyptic future Africa riven by genocidal tribal conflict between the light-skinned Nuru and dark-skinned Okeke. The protagonist Onyesonwu (whose name is Igbo for the book’s title, “who fears death”) was born of an interracial rape. As she grows older she realizes she has magical powers — and even more importantly, that someone else with powerful magic is trying to kill her. Who Fears Death won the 2011 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.
