Those who miss the Pacesetters series can probably visit the Ilupeju office at Industrial Avenue (opposite Zenith Bank). I was there yesterday (27th October 2010) and got like 14 titles at a low price of NGN280 each. I had previously bought three titles at NGN350 each at a book fair.

You may not get all the great titles but you would have a good selection.

Yeah, the author's name is Sam Aryeetey. That's a book I wanna lay my hands on and reread it again. I remember part of the story line, an unmarried girl is pregnant before the dipo rites and her pregnancy is exposed during the tribal ceremony which makes her an outcast in the community. She flees with her boyfriend to a city where she gives birth to a baby girl and is taken in by a loving family, but eventually, she dies, and her boyfriend is denied access to his daughter. He dies later on and the girl falls in love with who? The son of the family that took in her pregnant mother? I know the girl later on contacts her mother's family who insist that she has to undergo the dipo rites ceremony also.

Congrats! Its really great that Tesco shoppers can buy more books by African writers. And its also good to see African writers getting beyond the usual publishing and literary ghettoes. You truly do us proud!

Thank you!

You do speak the truth. Slow and steady.

I still have some: CROSS FORE, STONE OF VENGEANCE, COUP, MARK OF THE COBRA. They were all wonderful novels.

Our so called NOLLYWOOD should have at least convert it to home video. or better still the MACMILLIAN should re-publish it.

Was realy thrilled by Bloodbath at Lobster close, very nostalgic. Read almost all the series.

If you can recall the storyline in "The Cyclist", the bicycle repairer told his wife to enter the room and prepare for conjugal activity when he learnt that the woman's 1st husband had just returned from the Biafra war. back in those days that part of the story seemed like full blown Indecency. i remember visiting that particular page several times afterwards. ( i was under 10 yrs at the time). i used to get a kick by just reading that portion over and over again

i remember this title but not the storyline as you described it here.



When i first read 'Undesireable element' i thought that was the bomb until i started reading others, "ebvu my love", "rich girl poor boy" e.t.c

likewise.
Re: Do You Remember the Pacesetters Books? by Fogman(m): 1:34am On Apr 13, 2013
Oh! This have just refreshed my memory. Remember some like:

Tell Me No More
Rich girl, Poor boy
The betrayer
Tell me no more
The worshippers

I must read just a handful mostly by borrowing or my older-cousin-passed-it-down-to-me-thing.
The one I loved the most and can't forget and wis it was turned to a movie is The Worshippers it was a thriller
