Tricksters and animals play an important role in West African folklore with stories that entertain but serve a moral purpose.

Traditions and local tales revel in the antics of these characters: from Nigeria to Benin, from the cunning spider god Anansi to Agemo, the chameleon spirit deity of the Yoruba people, animals teach humans to farm, to love, to survive and thrive, and offer inspiration for moral purpose.

This new collection is created for the modern reader. FLAME TREE 451: From mystery to crime, supernatural to horror and myth, fantasy and science fiction, Flame Tree 451 offers a healthy diet of werewolves and robots, mad scientists, secret worlds, lost civilizations and escapist fantasies.

Discover a storehouse of tales, ancient and modern gathered specifically for the reader of the fantastic.
