The Memory Librarian and Other Stories from the World of Dirty Computer Inspired by themes from her new album: Dirty Computer and its complementary "emotion picture" Janelle Monae's collection of Afrofuturistic short stories draw us into a world where technology and fantasy combine.⁠ Monae says "Writers, specifically Black, queer and genderqueer, are at the forefront of pushing the creative boundaries of sci-fi and speculative storytelling. I'm honored to be collaborating with a new generation of creators as we expand this tale, that began with an album and emotion picture, into a larger world of new and familiar characters."⁠
