Title: Sunset Tales: Haunted Tales of Africa

It is a tradition in Nigeria for stories to be told at sunset. Sometimes the stories concern the supernatural and intend to raise goosebumps. Biola Olatunde, poet, screenwriter and novelist, provides 6 such tales but with an added twist. Each of her stories are insightful studies of aspects of Nigerian society – superstition, sexism, predjudice. They are skillfully wrapped in tales of mystery and the supernatural, in the language of a Nigerian storyteller. While set in West Africa, each tale resonates with every reader from around the world.

This chapbook is a tribute publication to the author, who unexpectedly passed away in 2021.
