    Title: The Port Harcourt Volunteer: Experiences of a Young Combatant in the  Nigeria-Biafra War

    Author: Sam Ohuabunwa

    Genre: Non-fiction (Memoir)

    Format: Paperback

    Number of Pages: 118

    Publication Year: July, 2015

    Publisher: Kraft Books Limited

    Available at: Amazon Kindle Store

    Short Description: This book is essentially the story of the Nigerian political crisis which started with the January 15, 1966 military coup and resulted in the Nigeria-Biafra War (1967-1970). It is told from the perspective of a young combatant from the Biafran side and chronicles Sam Ohuabunwa’s experience from the day schools were shut because of the war, the duration of the war, and the day they were opened as the war ended. It portrays the various risks he undertook in his zeal to defend the Biafran cause as a soldier and the amazing miraculous deliverances he enjoyed. To many Nigerians who were distant from the war, to those too young to  remember or those not born during this crisis, this book gives a good account of what caused the war, how it was fought and how it was brought to an end. A very important and critical point made in his book is that though the war was like a kind of war of unity for Nigeria, the desired unity has not really been achieved. Nigerians are encouraged to take certain critical steps to seal and solidify  Nigeria’s unity, so that Nigeria will not fight another civil war, ever.

    Author: Olawale Famodun

    Genre: Poetry

    Format: Paperback

    Book Dimension: 6 x 9

    Number of Pages: 106

    Publication Year: January 18, 2015

    Publisher: Creative Talents Unleashed

    ISBN: 978-0990500971

    Available at: Amazon Store

    Short Description: A very deep collection with the author touching on a number of threads about life. Love, especially, is proclaimed and celebrated in ‘The Rains have fallen’, ‘Yours unconditionally’, ‘Star’, ‘Love has made it’ and many more.

    Famodun’s style sometimes drifts to the pre-romantic era of English literature. However, in ‘Aditu’, the author uses poetic insight to explain the mysterious powers of nature that man has succeed in harnessing, but has yet to fully explain. The spirit of assurance of redemption is woven throughout the collection especially in poems like ‘Positive’ and ‘Poem of Redemption’. It is a good read and very philosophical in ‘Gangplank’, ‘The Way’, ‘I, someone else and Myself with Me’, ‘Infinity’ and ‘Baby’. You don’t need to appreciate reading poetry before you could enjoy ‘Poems of Redemption.’ – MrAkanz (Amazon Reviewer)

    Title: Themis

    Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

    Genre: Drama

    Format: eBook (Kindle Edition)

    Book Dimension (Paperback): NA

    File Size (eBook): 934 KB

    Number of Pages (eBook): 90

    Publication Year: February 1, 2017

    Publisher: Zakky Bookworld International

    ISBN: 978-1520504063

    Available at: Amazon (Kindle Store)

    Short Description: Themis, the Greek goddess of justice, also popularly known as the blind Lady Justice, hails from the first generation of the line of the Titans in ancient Greek mythology. The myth woven around her in this play is aimed at bringing to the fore the universal theme of justice and its concomitant principle of equality of all before the naked eyes of the law which are the mainstay of the time-hallowed doctrine of the Rule of Law.
    Themis is the mythopoeic story of the goddess’ passion for justice and equity far above primordial sentiments. It foregrounds the sacred place of justice above the wild call of consanguinity and romantic love. Told in a lyrical language that transports the reader or audience to the fabled Mount Olympus, the revered abode of the gods, the play demystifies the gods in the pantheon by conferring on them with some basic human attributes.
