  • A Fallen Citadel and Other Poemsby Imali J. Abala

    Langaa RPCIG 2012; US$ 19.95

    A Fallen Citadel and Other Poems is a powerful collection of over forty prose poems. The poems cover an array of issues ranging from the crisis that ensued after the 2007-2008 elections in Kenya to other social issues: loss of identity, poverty, hopelessness, and AIDs.

  • Beware the Drivesby Sammy Oke Akombi

    Langaa RPCIG 2008; US$ 19.95

    This collection of verse, which has mostly short poems, some of which are two-liners, is an outcome of several years of keen observation of the very nature of man. The observation brought this writer to the conclusion that man is dominated by fear and in his effort to conquer it, he resorts to unbridled aggression. Such aggression has been very instrumental... more...

  • Forest Echoesby Nol Alembong

    Langaa RPCIG 2010; US$ 19.95

    Forest Echoes is a literary quilt revealing a mature poet bestriding generations as he patches together a people's culture, their philosophy, history, along with their attendant woes into a subtle, sometimes disillusioning even, yet purposeful and poignant whole. Nol Alembong is not afraid to be himself in this work: a scholar, teacher, parent,... more...

  • A Basket of Flaming Ashesby Joyce B. Ashuntantang

    Langaa RPCIG 2010; US$ 19.95

    Ashuntantang is an extraordinary weaver of words who showcases vivid pictures that compete with 3D simulation. Her greatest asset is her use of the beautiful traditional Cameroonian anchor that evokes folk tales with its moonlight romance and glory. You feel, laugh, weep, shiver, wonder, and hail the triumphant spirit of the persona as it navigates... more...

  • Voices from Africa and Beyondby Funwi F. Ayuninjam

    Langaa RPCIG 2011; US$ 19.95

    In this collection Ayuninjam attempts to capture his sentiments on many plains. He also takes the liberty to capture the sentiments of other persons in his life and in society as a whole as well as the sentiments of other creatures that are part of the chain of life. As a result, much of what follows is occasional poetry, as he has more often than... more...

  • Obili Bluesby Ada Bessomo

    Langaa RPCIG 2010; US$ 19.95

    We henceforth would open our eyes, as obscene dancers of moving kidneys, as songs burning with sexual aches, alarm bells in the stomach of emptiness, today constitute our revolution. For Ada Bessomo, Obili, a residential area in Yaounde, capital of Cameroon, is the epitome of bitterness itself. How does one, in such a context, reconcile self esteem,... more...

  • Oriki'badanby Emmanuel Fru Doh

    Langaa RPCIG 2009; US$ 18.95

    ORIKI'BADAN, is an entertaining, revealing, and equally didactic poem in which Doh, through an enchanting metaphorical backdrop, recaptures a memorable era-rich, diverse, challenging, yet gratifying-in the life of a distinguished institution-the University of Ibadan, Nigeria. Characteristically bitter about those in power and the socio-political... more...

  • Wading the Tideby Emmanuel Fru Doh

    Langaa RPCIG 2009; US$ 19.95

    Wading the Tide is an expression of profound emotions touching on a wide range of issues-personal and political-from the birth of the Cameroon nation, her political meandering, until the state of emergency declared on the North West Province in 1992. Accordingly, Doh complains, ridicules, and pays tribute, even as he instructs and guides on timeless... more...
