Of Murder, Muses and Me by Claudia Chibici-Revneanu – A sharp, witty and at times hilarious mystery for fans of Christopher Brookmyre and Colin Bateman, set in the world of book publishing.

Radio Sunrise by Anietie Isong – a hilarious yet sobering satirical portrait of Nigeria that fully deserves a place amongst the great works of ‘post-post-colonial’ African literature.



The Reactive by Masande Ntshanga – a poignant, life-affirming story about secrets, memory, chemical abuse and family, and the redemption that comes from facing what haunts us most.
