"From the first page of the of the first story, I felt that surge of anticipation of the possibility of something really special…..” Binyavanga Wainaina 
“...perfectly poised between the robustness of genre fiction and the more literary concern...”
“…well worth reading.” 
"Memorable. Well plotted, well edited, with a cool Afro flavor in each story." Zukiswa Wanner

"...as I read story after story, many times miserly-like, I kept being grateful that I hadn’t put it off any longer. It surpassed my expectations...... read A Killing in the Sun. You’ll be pleasantly surprised." Hannah Onoguwe 

"This short story collection by Ugandan writer, Dilman Dila, is sheer entertainment with a thick seam of seriousness....The beauty of these stories is that each in their own way shows a human side, of people who love, hate, fear and yearn. Dila’s wonderful imagination lifts this collection into  an alien yet familiar space, where the ‘other’ is lampooned in a fantastical way. "

Penny de Vries, African Writing Book Reviews.

"A treat for readers."

Beverly Nambozo, in The Daily Monitor

"Something unique"

"Enjoyable.... Dila has good material and can clearly write brilliant speculative fiction." Tade Thomson

Straight up loved it....Dilman’s writing style flows off the page and I lost myself in each and every story. Seriously, I can’t praise this collection of stories enough. Another Drop of Ink
