Dominion: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction from Africa and the African Diaspora
by Zelda Knight (Editor), Oghenechovwe Donald Ekpeki (Editor)
To Say Nothing of Lost Figurines by Rafeeat Aliyu
Another Nigerian author. The title immediately made me think of To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. That book has been on my want-to-read list for ages, but so far I haven’t gotten round to it yet. I can‘t tell if it was a plot bunny for this story, which is a magical portal fantasy. Amusing tone, bit of a caper/heist story. Needs more… ★★★★☆
Sleep Papa, Sleep by Suyi Okungbowa Davies
And another Nigerian author. I liked his David Mogo Godhunter (my review is here).
This story is pretty gruesome, but excellently written. We are talking body parts, corpses and violence. Well crafted horror tale with no loose ends. ★★★★★
