"The Adinkra Cloth & Other Stories" contains five "African fantasy" short stories by Nebula Finalist Mary C. Aldridge. Besides the title story, this volume includes Cauldron winner story "The Knife That Makes Men," "The Windela Man," the light-hearted "A Courting Story," and "The Work Leader." "The Work Leader" is a novelette-length tale that was awarded a Fiction Fellowship by the Massachusetts Artists Foundation.
"The Adinkra Cloth & Other Stories" includes a short Introduction by the author ("Fantastic Roots, or: Story Gumbo"). This Introduction briefly discusses origins of the stories and gives readers a peek into the mind of the fantasy writer.
The five stories in this collection range in type from boastful tall tale to haunting fairy tale, and from mystery-adventures featuring fiery magical battles and the subtle power of song-magic, to a young farmer's fight against the forest spirits for himself and the land itself. Here are stories of love and law, courage and honor, and (sometimes) laughter. They are stories that can be enjoyed by any reader who enjoys a satisfying tale of magic and wonder, along with "people you can really care about."
