“Sleep Papa, Sleep” now out in Lights Out: Resurrection (Plus: Cover reveal)

So, my horror story “Sleep Papa, Sleep” is featured in this brand new anthology titled Lights Out: Resurrection, just released by The Naked Convos. See gorgeous cover below.


From the horse’s mouth:

Lights Out: Resurrection is an anthology that explores what happens when that which we thought dead returns seeking vengeance, when sins we thought hidden resurface to haunt, when prejudices we thought forgotten return to us, brandishing teeth. Featuring spectacular African authors from the horror, dark fantasy, speculative fiction, and thriller genres, Lights Out: Resurrection showcases excellent contemporary African horror fiction.

Prepare yourself for 10 terror-inducing tales.

It features tales from some of the best hands in African speculative fiction:
