Aida, Hurray for Somo and Other Stories is a thematic aggregate of Austin Ejiet’s creative output, featuring as it does the author’s earliest experiments and some of his most recent short stories. Although the stories are wholly fictional, they encapsulate three decades of Uganda’s violent history and, more importantly, the responses of human beings to crises engendered by pain and sustained brutality, giving credence to Albert Camus’ assertion that there is more to admire in men than to despise.
Ulysses Chuka Kibuuka subtly weaves encyclopedic knowledge of Uganda’s indigenous languages and history to create chronicles of a country with a complex past and uncertain future. He creates vivid tales of the legacy of foreign interventions, domestic powers, and individuals negotiating their lives in a world where tradition and modernity are merging.

A Killing in the Sun is a collection of speculative fiction from Africa. It draws from the rich oral culture of the author’s childhood, to tell a wide variety of stories. Some are set in a futuristic Africa, where technology has transformed everyday life and a dark force rules. Others are set in the present day, with refugee aliens from outer space, ghosts haunting brides and grooms, evil scientists stalking villages, and greedy corporations creating apocalypses. There are murder mysteries, tales of reincarnation and of the walking dead, and alternative worlds whose themes any reader will identify with. This collection is deftly crafted, running along the thin boundary of speculative and literary genres.
