NOTE: ImageNations objective is the PROMOTION OF AFRICAN LITERATURE, however when such publication or work seems to be of dubious source, ImageNations would not participate in its promotion. Ever since I posted this article, a lot of stories have come to my attention that the people at StoryAfrica who claimed to have published this masterpiece of an anthology, did it without the consent of the story owners. Thus, though some of the writers have given them the consent LATER ON, most of the have not. They then promised to pull it down from Amazon but this has not yet been done. Hence, NOTE THAT IF YOU PURCHASE THIS BOOK YOU ARE CONDONING A CRIME. Please help us to protect the Intellectual Property of writers. The following are internet sources to support this claim.
ImageNations would however continue to promote African Literature and as such if the editors or publishers or the people at StoryAfrica do come out with any new collection or publication, which is certified to be original with no lingering illegality, we intend to promote it. However, ImageNations would not condone in illegal acts. ImageNations apologize for this inconvenience and we hope that you would keep visiting this blog. HELP PROMOTE AFRICAN LITERATURE.
