About this book:

This new collection of eighteen weird, vivid, beautiful stories by Dare Segun Falowo, rising star of African Literature, explores Nigerian life, culture and belief through the prism of the writer’s extraordinary imagination. The stories range from the historical slipstream of ‘Eating Kaolin’, to the gleaming horror of ‘Ngozi Ugegbe Nwa’, in which a strange and beautiful mirror wreaks havoc on the life of a young Lagos model, to the lysergic science fiction of ‘Convergence in Chorus Architecture’.

Falowo describes his collection thus: ‘These texts are mostly inspired by real events and/or emotional states, and were also fuelled by my love of indigenous cosmologies and pop culture symbolism. They were written in various caged spaces, where the pulse and ambient sounds of the world outside became, after a while, like arrhythmic waves crashing on the shores of my listening.’

Glittering and strange, deeply humane and percipient, these stories attest to the rude health of the new wave of world supernatural fiction—Caged Ocean Dub is in the vanguard of that wave.
