Read “58 Rules to Ensure Your Husband Loves You Forever”
I have the pressure Nigerian society places on women (whether single or married) to thank for this story. In “58 Rules to Ensure Your Husband Loves You Forever”, our heroine, Iman is married to a man who slowly becomes a zombie. Encouraged by an aunt, Iman remains with her zombified husband in a strange marriage.
“58 Rules to Ensure Your Husband Loves You Forever” was longlisted for the 2017 Writivism Short Story Prize and is now available to read in Nightmare magazine! I’m super thankful to John Joseph Adams, Sandra Odell, Wendy Wagner and the rest of the team at Nightmare!Read Nightmare issue 77 here!
New story in FIYAH Magazine!
I am thrilled to have a story in FIYAH magazine, a publication that I’ve admired since its inception. “The Daemon King of Engim” was written while I was at the Clarion West workshop last year. The idea for this story come from a Hausa folktale but the final product is so far removed from the tale that I doubt it’s worth the mention. “The Daemon King of Engim” is a story about a girl, a deity and wrestling. Charles Payseur says it’s “delightful, and definitely recommended!“
Really thankful to Troy Wiggins and the rest of the FIYAH team!Buy FIYAH issue 9 here
