You probably knew that literary superstar Junot Díaz is a big fan of science fiction and fantasy, but did you know he's written a couple of science fiction novels that never saw the light of day? Talking to Geeks' Guide to the Galaxy, Díaz explains that he wrote a far-future novel in the vein of Gene Wolfe, called Shadow of the Adept, and a post-apocalyptic Akira-esque adventure called Dark America. But he's not a fast enough writer to be able to juggle the literary novels and the genre books as he'd always hoped. Now, he's working on a third SF project — a novel about giant zombies, set in Haiti. Giant zombies, people. Let's pester Junot Díaz until he delivers! [Wired]
