Every book added to the bookshelf is a plus. But it is more satisfying when it is a good book. When readers love it…when they laugh uncontrollably in the train, plane, metro or the bus while reading a funny scene or when they frown their faces, touched by a sad portion in the book or when their hearts pound when they read through an anti-climax.
It is as well satisfying when your phone rings off the hook or your mailbox fills with praises and positive reviews. When characters in your book are immortalized and their names used to crack jokes or used as references...
My novel "A Place of Fun and Evil" has been described as…"a thrilling reading spiced with in-depth humour"…and…"a fascinating narration with a very unique style". Other reviews are found on the readers' reviews page of this website.
"A Place of Fun and Evil" is indeed a very thrilling African story, spiced with unforgettable humour and deep adventure...one you will never regret you read.
My other book Pilgrimage of No Retreat is also advertised on this website. It is a collection of 50 of my most precious poems. Some of which have been dramatized to audiences across the world with tremendous positive feedback. These are 50 fascinating poems you will love.
Copies of this prolific novel can be bought on this site, through the author (me), in shops in the Netherlands e.g the largest bookshop Selexzy Bookshop etc; Belgium, Germany, UK, Canada etc and from online bookstores like www.publiola.com etc. Click the ‘Bookstore’ menu to get more details on where and how you can buy my books. Order copies via my online Bookstore or download eBooks from the "E-Book" page.
My Magazine, African Celebrities Magazine (ACM) is also mentioned here. It has its full website http://www.african-celebrities.com/ from where you can learn more about it or sponsor it if you are interested. It is a fabulous Magazine with great goals and objectives and the quality is very professional. It is one of the the most influential non political pro-Africa Magazines published in Europe which covers all African Celebrities throughout Africa and worldwide.

Een boek voor de liefhebber van gedichten.
Pilgrimage of no Retreat is een tijdreis door de wereld van mythen, legendes, liefde, de natuur, revolutie, tribute, metafysica, politiek en gedichten die leiden tot een scheur in uw ogen met de verhalen die ze vertellen.
Het boek presenteert gedichten uit de hele wereld door een zeer intelligente Kameroense geboren journalist en dichter uit Rotterdam.
De titel is misschien dan ook wel een beetje symbolisch…”Pilgrimage of no Retreat”, een bedevaart van geen terugtocht naar de wereld van zeer goede poëzie.
50 gedichten die iedereen gelezen moet hebben. Volgens mij is het boek van Larry Bate Takang de canon van de moderne Afrikaanse poëzie. Mijn verbazing was zeer groot. Lees zelf.
