From Limbe, the seaside city, to Kolofata in the north of Cameroon, Of Passion and Ink moves from stories of star-crossed lovers, mental health, dark fantasy, displacement, speculative futures to radicalization. These stories subvert what is believed to be the Cameroonian short story and offer exciting new directions.

Selected from the Bakwa Magazine Short Story Prize, as well as commissioned, these stories herald new voices in Cameroonian fiction, by young writers who write in English and French.

Stories by: Dipita Kwa, Bengono Essola Edouard, Monique Kwachou, Dzekashu MacViban, Howard M-B Maximus, Nkiacha Atemnkeng, A. Bouna Guazong, Rita Bakop, Momo Bertrand and Wise Nzikie Ngasa.
