The 130 Titles Of The Pacesetters Series by MAYOWAAK: 10:23pm On Mar 19, 2015
Remember Pacesetters series?
See all the 130 titles. Which ones have you read?
----
Pacesetters is a Macmillan novel series written by established African authors who write on societal realities, personal concerns, contemporary issues and problems faced by Africans.
Unlike the other well-known series that deal mainly with romance and crime, the Pacesetters series is uniquely different in that it is an all rounder dealing with these areas and more and it is the only novel series written by Africans.
The series was created in 1977, with the publication of Agbo Areo’s Director! By the early 1990s, there were 125 titles.
Latter, due to various reasons, the titles in the series have diminished in presence in the mainstream market.
There have been about 130 titles published to date.
"No other series has captured the public imagination like Pacesetters, stories of romance, espionage, danger, intrigue and mystery written by outstanding writers whose work you will want to read again and again."
-Macmillan, Botswana

I just remember those series today and decided to check'em up online only to see this thread. It means I'm not the only one missing those series. Each sentence and actions of each character of their novels are what anyone can relate to. My best so far has been Sisi by Yemi Sikuade
