Read Dead Corpse for the wonderful fiction and let its deeper truths settle into your soul.
The very last thing I expected within a book of African Horror was a scene that transported me immediately to the mid-eighties, reading SALEM’S LOT in my Aunt’s summer house, the hackles on the back of my neck rising, yet there it was.
Nuzo Onoh: “In Africa, we have a proliferation of tribes (over 3000 tribes and counting), each, boasting a treasure-chest of supernatural entities, which very few cultures, not even the Japanese, can rival in their sheer volume and malevolence.”
William Friedkin once said, “True horror is seeing something approach.”* Nuzo Onoh’s work exemplifies this saying. You can see the events unfolding, you know something is coming, and yet you protest, “No this cannot be,” as you crawl backwards in your seat.
