Africa Book Link is a platform on new African fiction and its criticism.

In our newsletter – published twice a year – the latest books, articles, interviews, reviews and African short stories are highlighted.

 It is the storyteller who makes us what we are, who creates history. The storyteller creates the memory that the survivors must have – otherwise their surviving would have no meaning.

By subscribing to our newsletter, scholars, students, research centres, libraries and bookshops, can fully acquaint themselves with the latest publications in the field of African fiction.

Publishers and distributors, on the other hand, will benefit from the free publicity of their books in the newsletter. So, they are invited to send us all their alerts of new and forthcoming African fiction books.

Publishers, distributors or bookshops may also contact us if they want a banner in our newsletter and on our website. By a banner, with a link to your own website, you’ll become a partner of the Africa Book Link, but more than that, all your African fiction books will be advertised.
