The brain behind this idea is a clever nine-year-old called Simi Coker whose interest in reading newspapers makes her aware of happenings in Port Winkle. This is how she comes to know the grown-ups are going to have an election which she thinks shouldn’t be a purely grown-up affair. For Simi, children have rights as citizens and must be allowed to participate in the election or in a purely children’s election for a purely children’s government.

Find out all about the rough and tumble, the daring exploits as well as what it means when children take charge of their lives through their very own government.

Short Description: How does one date bring bittersweet memories in one single thought? That was one of the questions in Folarin’s mind as he narrates his spine-chilling encounter with kidnappers. On a bright sunny Saturday morning of 1st May 1999, himself and Titi were joined in Holy Matrimony. 17 years later, they were forcefully separated, on the same date.

When Folarin stepped out of his study in the early hours of May 1, 2006, he was sure the sight before him wasn’t real. Unfortunately, this was a reality he couldn’t shake away. Without warning, he was abducted from the comfort of his home. Exposed to the elements of nature with little or no food, and in constant terror of a dangerously armed gang, he had to negotiate his freedom but not before an unexpected twist brought him in a direct, hair-raising confrontation with his abductors.

Set in the South-South region of Nigeria, Abduction Chronicles is a gripping account of Folarin’s many close shaves with death, with striking details of his journey to and from abyss.

Number of Pages: 103

Publication Year: November 26, 2018

Short Description: “…the governor is coming tomorrow, and we have prepared another dance for him. He will get on the news again to announce all things that he had donated to the camp. The foreign aid team will come with their own supplies too. they will take pictures with us–and with all the things that have been donated to the camp. The newspaper will show our pictures smiling like we have been instructed to do by the camp officers when the pictures were taken. But then the store is always empty. The foods, the water, the drugs and even the mosquito nets disappear immediately their pictures have been taken. None of those things have legs! How did they walk away? The answer is simple. They took them!”

Embers is a drama of metaphor, and perhaps the dialogue captured above best illustrates the dilemma in that metaphor.

Title: This Side of the Dead

Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

Genre: Drama

Format: Paperback

Book Dimension: 5.0 x 7.5

Number of Pages: 181

Publication Year: 2018

Publisher: Old Press (PEA & Associates)

ISBN: 978-9789545346

Available at: Booksellers Ltd, Abuja, Citi Plaza, Area 11, Garki and No. 34, Ankpa Road, Makurdi, 08035933577

Short Description: Mr. Ogezi’s new play examines the fears, struggles and triumphs of the downtrodden in a class-restive society. With deft utilization of stage resources and verisimilitude, humanity is depicted with telling imaginative empathy in a ghoulish dramatization that embeds reality in fiction.

This Side of the Dead mirrors the class tensions inherent in a third-world country and their attendant consequences. It is about the lives of two brothers caught in the vortex of a soulless world. Michael, an expelled final-year law student on asylum at his elder brother’s construction site home, unwittingly manages to attract love from Susan, an American-born daughter of a Nigerian Cabinet Minister. Unfortunately, his ambivalence to this love does not suffice in stopping the huge price which the poor must pay for crashing the party of the rich and the powerful.
