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.
