I think these people are doing a fantastic job, exposing contemporary Nigerian literature to the world, and they should be financially supported by whatever means.Labors of love, such as this, are one of the few hopes left for a dying publishing industry . Buy this book. All my earning from the proceeds of the Flash Sale goes to charity. All of it .Gracias!

Soul sacrifice

http://bible.us/jas3.13-17.amp Who is there among you who is wise and intelligent? Then let him by his noble living show forth his [good] works with the [unobtrusive] humility [which is the proper attribute] of true wisdom. But if you have bitter...

Soul sacrifice

If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give all...

Denge first lap completed

Two sittings of approximately three hours each estimated to completion of the first draft of my farcical short novel DENGE. I had previously reckoned a September completion but alas Money sent me on a more urgent errand.

Denge - the man who prayed to God, come take me home ; and God...

Revisited : Race against Superflu

A couple of months ago after Ebola had landed in Nigeria, I warned here on Facebook that this is a global problem which the entire world ought to urgently engage with . Our brothers and sisters abroad (and even many at home) shouted me down and chose to focus instead on corruption in Africa...

Ebola tourist destination

Wow! Nigeria may now become the preferred port of call for Ebola carriers - with our demonstrated success record. :(

The accusing fish head

Why do some of these restaurant people neglect to remove the eye from the fish head before cooking it ? I really do feel guilty eating this guy; I mean while it is sort of staring at me.

Remembering henry Miller - Tropic of Cancer

" I am living at the Villa Borghese. There is not a crumb of dirt anywhere, nor a chair misplaced. We are all alone here and we are dead.
Last night Boris discovered that he was lousy. I had to shave his armpits and even then the itching did not stop. How can one get lousy in a beautiful...

Nose To Grindstone - an advertisement for myself

I foresee that my nose will one day get me into trouble. Please stay awhile while I explain. Last week I was speaking on the phone with a friend I hadn't seen in more than 30 years. He was with another friend whom I hadn't seen in as many years and I had just met again in an event earlier in...

Kept away from church this morning by my cranky shoulder. I am sure God is not pleased with this and He's going to fix it quickly. I predict I shall be driving again by tomorrow morning.

Dreary day. Left shoulder still hurting from repetitively sleeping on it at night. Possibly dislocated (I hope not) , because regular paracetamol don't seem to help much ; unfortunately can't/won't take anything stronger. Incredible pain here. Can't drive; safest thing appears to just lie down,...

There is no magic here. We tamed Ebola by putting into action our tremendous abilities to FEAR , and which we have practiced over many decades and become experts at. Here in Nigeria, the fear of death (and gods ) is the beginning of wisdom (and end of Ebola).... especially after getting used...
