Lost Ark Dreaming (2024)
Suyi Davies Okungbowa
"Lost Ark Dreaming reads like a locked-room-styled dystopia slick as a fast-paced horror with the tones of social commentary. A surreal fusion of African politics, climate fiction, and mythology in the tongue of poetry and philosophy."

Mage of Fools (2022)
Eugen Bacon
"Mage of Fools' enchanting imagery and worldbuilding is richly woven in dark, delicious prose. This beautiful story reads like a dream trapped in a dystopian world with the texture of a fairytale. A poignant tale that has its characters dancing to its song with spirit, strength and some humour. I drank every achingly beautiful word."
