“The Real” is shortlisted!

I’ve just heard that my book “The Real” has been shortlisted for the Ilube Nommo Award for best speculative novel by an African. How about that!
Other people on the short list:

Gavin Chait OUR MEMORY LIKE DUST
Deon Meyer FEVER
Tochi Onyebuchi BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT
Deji Olokotun AFTER THE FLARE
Nnedi Okorafor AKATA WARRIOR

That’s quite a list.

In the next three months, apparently all of these books will be made available to Nommo members so they can vote for a winner.  You can read all about this competition at the Nommo site:
