Dark Moons Rising on a Starless Night (Paperback)
"Diene's talent for the primal scene of horror is resplendent with his ability to offer sparse, violent prose that unexpectedly captures the ugliness, disgustingness, brutality of violence that makes us horror readers cringe at scenes by masters like Richard Matheson, Stephen King, or Clive Barker...He moves between dream/vision and reality to tell stories that meditate heavily on the changes wrought in different African nations by the forces of globalization and neoliberalism."
