Brown Girl in the Ring
- Written by: Nalo Hopkinson
- Narrated by: Peter Jay Fernandez
- Length: 7 hrs and 52 mins
It is the late 21st century, and due to the economic breakdown and rising crime rate, nearly every citizen has fled Toronto. The city is a slum, populated by the homeless, the poor, and criminals like Rudy, who uses the power of voodoo to help him control the booming drug market. But also left behind are people like Ti-Jeanne, who hope to use voodoo to help rebuild the city, even as Canada's privileged population turns to Toronto to begin harvesting human organs.

set in Toronto, blending the familiar with the strange; homeless, addicted, criminal bullies, politicians, resourceful community healers and organizers, there is more that is familiar than science fiction, but the spirit world brings both entertainment and wisdom to the story. at first I didn't like having a male reader but after awhile stopped noticing.
