In an age when the rights of women are under constant and close scrutiny in the Western world, it is timely to remind ourselves of the appalling conditions in which women still spend their lives in many parts of the African continent. Killing them softly is the story of Martha Clifford, who in her infancy witnessed the trauma of female genital mutilation, attempted rape as well as the brazen discrimination and shoddy treatment of feminine issues in her patriarchal native land of Nigeria. This is made worse by the huge prejudice against women, the marginalization and sexism: women sidelined as the ‘weaker sex’ and conditioned to be perpetually subservient to their male counterparts in the chauvinistic society. Believing that men are their oppressors and women should fight their own battles, young Martha teams up with like-minded feminists and with their pressure group: Woe-man Incorporated, they challenge their country’s discriminatory laws, statutes as well as the dicta of culture, religion, tradition and customs all of which debase womanhood. Bruised, battered and imprisoned, these courageous women strive on until they are set free by the intervention of human rights groups abroad, a respite which only made them more resolute in their struggle for gender justice and egalitarianism.

The residents of Agarta, a medieval society, called their planet, ‘home’. With his human servants at his side, Archon spread war across the planet. His most prized human servant Anu-Krai, King of the Knights of Anu, headed the conquest with another. Anu-Krai had been abducted as a child. He soon discovered a wonderous human woman who claimed to be the Earth itself. She told him his world was merely encased in a simulated prison; his entire universe, a façade. There was no escape, even in death.
He followed the seeds of truth before him, he yearned for it, suffering for his choices. His loyalties were tested. A planetary war, a galactic war, a universal war. In the end one must ask; how much are you willing to sacrifice, to save that which you love?
