A collection of unique African stories set in a neo-mythology full of boys who feed crocodiles daily to keep them from villages, God-Queens who rule over humble farmlands, and sentient calabashes that feel joy, grief, anger, fear, and loneliness -- often at the same time. 

This collection seeks to bring you Southern Africa as it has never been seen before, blending the best of modern culture, ancient folklore, and fantasy in the mortar of magical realism.
