General News of Saturday, 1 May 2010
African Roar is a fiction anthology drawn from the very best stories published from
2007-2009, in the StoryTime weekly literary ezine
(www.publishyourstory.blogspot.com) dedicated to publishing African writers.
Between these covers you will find eleven stories that stand as a testament to the
upsurge of talented African writers boldly utilising the cutting edge of technology
and the writing craft to be read globally. Spanning Africa and the African Diaspora
in past, present and future, each story has a fresh and diverse vision that opens up
new vistas of experience.
From the lucid terrors of domestic violence through the eyes of a child, and the
anguish of those left behind by a fleeing Diaspora, to a full circle, when the prey
becomes the hunter and has the opportunity for revenge, and a dryly humourous look
at what it's like to lose a quarter of your brain, to name just a few of the
treasures that lie within.
Forthcoming in April 2010, Edited by Emmanuel Sigauke & Ivor W. Hartmann, to be
published by The Lion Press Ltd.
