    This is a fantastic collection of short stories by African authors. All the writing and the stories are superb and I would highly recommend the entire volume. My favorites were the two sci-fi stories, "Where Rivers Go To Die" by Dila and "Tie Kidi" by Awuor Onyango; I would love to read a novel-length version of those two stories and hear what happens next. My runner-up favorites are "Wednesday's Story" by Talabi, "Involution" by Hardy and "All Things Bright and Beautiful" by Troy Onyango.

    This was a rarity for an anthology: mostly hits rather than misses for me. My personal favourites in no particular order: "Involution" by Stacy Hardy "Fanta Blackcurrant" by Makena Onjerika "Wednesday's Story" by Wole Talabi "Grief is the Gift that Breaks the Spirit Open" by Eloghosa Osunde "Where Rivers go to Die" by Dilamn Dila They were all striking and powerful. Will keep an eye out on the authors and their writing careers.

    On the whole, this collection of short stories is wonderful. Each one delves into intriguing aspects of the variety of African life across the continent. I do wish some of the stories continued instead of ended. A few of them seem to end in the middle of the climax without a resolution. Also there are some words and phrases that will be unfamiliar if you are not knowledgeable about life in Africa. All that being said, this is a really solid collection and definitely worth a read.
