“Haunting on multiple levels”



Very kind comments from The Skiffy and Fanty Show about my story Honourable Mention in the anthology Dangerous Games.

“Tade Thompson’s “Honourable Mention,” which is haunting on multiple levels, is also a monster story. It’s also about the horrors of an entirely different form of consumption — the victims of exploitative labor systems, slavery as well as others. An emigrant to Britain, Tito plays the Nigerian game ayo, and Thompson adds to the historical game higher stakes, sleep deprivation, and what one man’s desperation will drive him to do to win. This was both the game I found most interesting and the story I found to be most thought-provoking.”

Dangerous Games is out now in all good and evil bookshops.
