Fiction: Sci-Fi/Fantasy
An afrofuturistic novel set in the socialist country of Mafinga—plagued by climate change

Mafinga needs a saviour. The socialist state is sick from the ravages of a dictator and his sorcerer. Jasmin’s strength is in books—what she knows will help cleanse Mafinga of its deadly pollution.

King Magu’s malevolence has snatched away the socialist state of Mafinga’s books and environmental health. With his sorcerer, Atari, his excesses have enabled a hostile climate whose sun has killed all the able men, including Jasmin’s husband Godi.

But Jasmin has inherited Godi’s clandestine story machine. It tells Jasmin of a better world, far different from the wastelands of Mafinga. Jasmin is arrested for possessing the machine and its forbidden literature filled with subversive text. It’s a crime punishable by death.
