Take a space bakkie ride to Cape Town to encounter aliens, Africans in space, gender bending shamans, and enchanted waters. Set in post-Apartheid South Africa, no fiction collection is complete without a story or two about Nelson Mandela with an Afrofuturistic twist. Feminist and womanist, Colin Cloud Dance’s strong African women characters create a new South African future.
Cape Town Curios is Colin’s collection of short stories based in South Africa. The collection began with writing the short story "Free Me!" written to honor Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela during his long illness in 2013. Colin won a place in the 2014 Writivism Class which included workshops and mentoring, and is meant to encourage African fiction . "Khoisan Horizon" was read live on the former Taxi Radio in Cape Town on September 22, 2014. "Souls Out of Egypt" was originally published as a three part series with O.T.H.E.R. Science Fiction magazine.
