By the Book: Shigidi And The Brass Head Of Obalufon, with Wole Talabi

In his debut novel, speculative fiction writer Wole Talabi draws on Yoruba mythology to tell an adventure story that spans space and time. At the heart of the tale is Shigidi, a disgruntled nightmare god who partners up with Nneoma, a succubus with a mysterious past. Together, they find themselves tangled up in a heist at the British Museum, battling magical and mythical forces. We speak to Wole about his love for this genre, how the character of Shigidi came about, and why he enjoys drawing on his Nigerian roots for his stories. To close off, we review the book.
