Avocado - July 2007 – Abolition special issue

AvocadoAvocado - July 2007 – Abolition special issue has been published and it contains one of my short stories, "Third Time," which I read at last year's Miami Book Fair International. Commemorating the abolition of the slave trade in 1807, this special issue of the magazine presents poems, stories and essays on the history of British encounters with Africa and the changing nature of Black Britain.

Avocado also features poetry by James Berry, Dorothea Smartt, Ian McDonald; Brazilian and African poetry translated from Portuguese and French; an article on the representation of Voodoo by Louise Fenton, and short fiction by David Dabydeen, and Elizabeth Walcott-Hackshaw. Not bad company.
