‘A Killing in the Sun’ is a collection of speculative fiction from Africa. It draws from the rich oral culture of the author’s childhood, to tell a wide variety of stories. Some of the stories are set in a futuristic Africa, where technology has transformed everyday life and a dark force rules. Others are set in the present day, with refugee aliens from outer space, ghosts haunting brides and grooms, evil scientists stalking villages, and greedy corporations creating apocalypses. There are murder mysteries, tales of reincarnation and of the walking dead, and alternative worlds whose themes any reader will identify with. This collection is deftly crafted, running along the thin boundary of speculative and literary genres.
Self-discovery is one of the basic keys to being successful in life. If we can not clearly define our own identiy, then the world will be deprived of the gift that we are. When we do not establish our identity within the sphere of our own influence, others will tell us who we are. We then try to become what others expect of us and thereby are doomed to failure because we cannot be what and who we are not. Therefore the first key to success in life, in any area of life, is to establish one's own identity. In this broadcast, we will define IDENTITY in general to lead you into defining your own PERSONAL IDENTITY as God intended. With the establishment of Identity, success is emminent and failure is impossible.
