Stof | Fiction
Alettie van den Heever
Western, Cape, twenty years post Hardship. Those who survive are hardened by the hunger after the crop failures, by the dust and the sun’s glare. Young Amper must go in search of lost love, while keeping her cargo of seeds from Meconium – they aim to control all plant life, for in 2081 seeds are a strict taboo and Amper’s heaviest burden.
Stof is subtle dystopian SF and an earthily poetic exploration of a unique Afrikaans.
