A woman who
carries her fate and that of her community in her hair is beguiled by the deceptive
designs of Europeans out to colonise her most prized possession. A man finds
happiness in the reincarnation of a lost love. A young woman risks her life for
freedom through the cultural practice of a human loan scheme.

Tales of
sacrifice, love, freedom, self-discovery and loss fill the pages of this
larger-than-life tapestry of stories from across Africa and its diaspora.
Forged in a diversity of tempers and forms, these stories range from the
epistolary to the experimental, from mysteries, noirs and political thrillers
to speculative fiction and futurism, and much more. In prose that moves from
visual and lyrical to gritty and visceral, these writers explore fate, memory,
the fragility of love and the duplicitous nature of human interactions
