This intended collection will include around 20 African short stories which will be translated into Icelandic. The stories will span a period of 50-70 years and represent as many African countries as possible. The collection will comprise the fourth volume of an anthology of short stories from around the world. The first two volumes, the North American and the Latin American ones, have already been published to critical acclaim in Iceland and the third, the Asian and Oceanian one, is due in 2018. The goal is to bring the world, as seen through this concise and innovative form, to the Icelandic readership.
