Fourteen More Stories

eBook (PDF), 167 Pages
(3 Ratings)
Price: Free
This is the second collection of previously published and unpublished short stories by this South African writer. The stories, works of creative fiction, are wide ranging, extending from mystery to allegory. Most of the book is in English, but there is a small amount of Afrikaans in it. There are also a few photographs that are loosely associated with some of the stories. While none of the stories has what publishers like to call “mature content”, readers with a certain degree of maturity are assumed. In order to ensure that a few of the stories do not offend any sensitive souls, the book is marked as “Mature”. Toward the end of the book is a short section of miscellaneous oddities, the kind with large areas of white on the page and not much text.

I soon discovered that Errol Collen ranks among those rare South African English authors to have succeeded brilliantly in encapsulating the atmosphere, culture, people, way of life and one-of-a-kind dialogue of our homeland. Only someone who has grown up in the unique mix of Afrikaans-English-African can truly appreciate the genius with which the author captures and celebrates that very essence on these pages. On several occasions, I was laughing out loud at the rich assortment of characters and their speech, although I am in a country far removed from ever hearing those familiar voices now. I feel this slim volume, together with its predecessor, which I have since read with equal enjoyment, belong among the... More > Africana to be preserved for posterity in a fast-changing society. To classify “Fourteen Stories” and “Fourteen More Stories” as a huge dose of nostalgia for any South African—in exile or at home—is no exaggeration. However, among this rich selection of stories, are those with a universal theme, which will appeal to every lover of the short story with a twist in the tail.< Less
