Arctype Press is a small press started in the Bronx. Its goal is simple, to provide exceptionally entertaining speculative and science fiction stories from a unique perspective. Arctype Terminal is a hub for things not typically associated with Melaninated People (people of African descent). American media outlets -television, film, radio, the news and even literature- seem to paint people of color with a monolithic brush. Of course basketball, rap and ‘urban’ themed movies and literature are popular amongst people of African descent (as well as other people too), but we have other interest, passions, and forms creative expressions. Even our religious, spiritual and philosophical beliefs have been marginalized. This site is for those who have some of those other interest, and even for those who didn’t know people of color participated in such activities in numbers. This blog is by no means exclusive, all are welcome to enjoy. I’m look forward to bringing you the uncommon goodness. Peace.
