    Impossible to assign a star rating to a collection that ranges from the briliant to the downright dull One thing strikes me as different from previous years the workshop stories are much interesting and daring than the short list Rotimi Babatunde s contribution leaves everyone else in the dust Honourable mentions also to Pede Hollist, Davina Kawuma and Melissa Tandiwe Myambo for their skill and unique approaches.

    Some really excellent stories in here along with the usual duds but only 2 stars as the typesetting and font somehow combined to be really awful for me to read struggled through as some of the pieces were brill but sadly let down by presentation.
