It Takes Two! Volume 3

Compiled by Rosamund Haden

Over six months during 2016 five well-known South African authors teamed up with five talented upcoming young writers to bring you this anthology of exciting, contemporary short stories. From crime and fantasy to romance and human drama, there is something for every reader to enjoy.

Nompumelelo Makhaye and Carol Campbell’s stories ‘Nkanyezi’ and ‘House of War’ follow the life of a young man, shunned by his family, who makes his way from a rural area to the coastal town where his fate awaits.

Njabulo Shongwe and Dianne Stewart wrote romantic stories about love and betrayal in ‘Love Never Dies’ and its sequel, ‘Victory’.

Leanne Raman and Rosamund Kendal bring the fantastical ‘Captain Kind’ and ‘Prof V’ to life in the fantasy super-hero stories, ‘The Adventures of Captain Kind’ and ‘Going Viral’.

Israel Lumile and Sifiso Mzobe write two very different stories, one historical: ‘The Greatest Battles Are Within’ about power struggles in the Zulu kingdom, and the other a contemporary crime story, ‘Philasande and The Missing Girls’. Both take place on the same land, once a Zulu village, and now Umlazi township in Durban.

Elana Bregin and Nokuphila Nzimande write entertaining stories of lies and deception in the art of romance in ‘The Babe Magnet’ and ‘Chasing the Good Life’.
