Our publishing activities have now ceased, and we regret we are unable to consider any further publishing proposals. A number of pages, including details of our previous consultancy and mailing list services, have been removed from the site.
However, we intend to continue to maintain a modest Web presence, and these new Web pages provide some background about our past activities, details of backlist titles still in print, reviews of recent titles, as well as some other documents. Also included are links to articles and papers by Hans Zell on topics relating to publishing and book development in Africa, as well as an extensive links section to organizations, groups and associations that are active and/or supportive of African publishing and the ‘book chain’. Some news items of interest to the book professions will also be posted from time to time.
