I'm sorry, but the combined effort of trying to get across to you all and sending few or many of her books would actually be very stressful and take some time, so i wont be sending again. I apologize for disappointing you.

Like i told maynation , you can get her books on amazon and other online stores.

The only way I'm accepting your apology is when you start updating us with episodes from ' YOUR OWN BOOK ' QED...........

My Nnedi! Nigerians really slept on her tbh. She is good at the sci fi books she writes. She also writes for marvel and is best friends with George RR Martin (Game Of Thrones)
For real girl, whenever I make posts about her people don't know much about her. We're not yet ready to acknowledge Sci-Fi in Nigeria.

Met her at Akefest a few days ago. Strong and imposing personality. Between then and now, I've read the Binti trilogy. Not bad I must say.
She's blunt and doesn't mince words right?

I think the reason most Nigerians don't know about her is because she isn't everywhere like Chimamanda. She is quite reserved but VERY GOOD!

@ the bolded, True. But then again, how many Nigerians read?

Yea, she isn't one for fame. She lives the way geniuses do, simple and moderate.
I told alot of people shouting chimamanda and feminism together, that unlike her Nnedi talks about it as a whole rather than in part. While chimanda tends to concentrate more on gender, Nnedi talks about black excellence and the way blacks are always portrayed in Hollywood and the clear case of patriarchy pervading every sphere of society, she's indeed intelligent.
Then again, as you said, do Nigerians read?

you have to buy the books online on Amazon or any online book store. If you want it free, you have to find a friend that already has the books to share with you.

I have some of her books in digital format. They were so interesting !

About my book, i'll be posting some parts of it here soon. Courage to write and confidently present it to the public is not easy though, but if i dont try now, when will i, lol.

Can I get digital copies of her novel? If yes, please forward to strongmahn17@gmail.com

Thanks!
