Originally published in June 2019, Evolution is set over a century after R/evolution. We join William Woods as he travels the southern United States helping survivors, scavengers and those left behind.
Over a century after being gifted with exceptional genetic adaptations, William Woods still walks the earth, as strong and physically healthy as the day he was born. The country, on the other hand, is not so fortunate.
As powerful as R/evolution, the sequel offers a tighter vision of this possible United States. R/evolution leap-frogged across time and characters, building up a picture of the world and its people. This time we follow William and Lillian as they explore the various states and towns, flooded coastlines and submerged cities.
Covering genetic manipulation, technology, surveillance, climate catastrophe, reparations, corporate militarisation, and much more, Evolution paints a broad picture. But its the humanity that shines through the prose. William's loneliness, the weight of generations of hope on his shoulders.

Tenea D. Johnson
Tenea was born in Kentucky. She took with her, the calm of the Ohio River and the swell of honesty (sometimes refreshing, sometimes catastrophic) that afflicts the folks born along its banks. Adoring of ideas, she graduated from the New College of Florida (enrol there now and thank her later) and NYU's Gallatin School, as well as attending Clarion. Writing sustains her; music saves her. As often as possible, she straddles their borders to create compositions/fusions/hyphenated watchamacallit better heard than described.
So far the Knitting Factory, Dixon Place, The Public Theater, and others have opened their doors to the form.
Her work has appeared in Mothership: Tales of Afrofuturism, African Voices, Arise, Humanities in the South, Infinite Matrix, Contemporary American Women Poets, Shades of Blue and Gray, Whispers in the Night: Dark Dreams III and Necrologue, among others. She is the author of a poetry/short prose collection, Starting Friction as well as the novels, Smoketown and R/evolution. Smoketown won the 2011 Carl Brandon Parallax Award; R/evolution also received an honorable mention.
