Lena, a biologist and former soldier, joins a mission to uncover what happened to her husband inside Area X - a sinister and mysterious phenomenon that is expanding across the American coastline.

When working on the UNESCO Slave Route project in the early 2000s, Botlhale Tema discovered the extraordinary fact that her highly educated family from the farm Welgeval in the Pilanesberg had originated with two young men who had been child slaves in the midnineteenth century. She pieced together the fragments of information from relatives and members of the community, and scoured the archives to produce this book.
Land Of My Ancestors, previously published as The People Of Welgeval, tells the story of the two young men and their descendants, as they build a life for themselves on Welgeval. As they raise their families and take in people who have been dispossessed, we follow the births, deaths, adventures and joys of the farm’s inhabitants in their struggle to build a new community.
Set against the backdrop of slavery, colonialism, the Anglo-Boer War and the rise of apartheid, this is a fascinating and insightful retelling of history. It is an inspiring story about friendship and family, landownership and learning, and about how people transform themselves from victims to victors.
A new prologue and epilogue give more historical context to the narrative and tell the story of the land claim involving the farm, which happened after the book’s original publication.

Christiaan Olwagen neem die klassieke teaterstuk, The Seagull, deur Anton Tsjechof, en verplaas dit na Suid-Afrika in die 1990’s, bykans 100 jaar nadat dit geskryf is. Wat merkwaardig is, is dat die karakters uiters gemaklik in hierdie nuwe tydgleuf en omgewing bestaan, amper asof hulle geskryf is met die moontlikheid van só ‘n verplasing in gedagte.
Elkeen van Tsjechof se volronde karakters wroeg met hulle eie vrese, verlange, twyfel en frustrasies, wat natuurlik as gevolg van hulle eie toedoen is.
Ons ontmoet die teaterdiva Irene (Sandra Prinsloo), wie sukkel om gewoond te raak aan streeksrade wat nie meer bestaan nie en kunstefeeste wat haar loopbaan se voorland is; haar sieklike ouer broer, Piet (Marius Weyers), wat wens hy het meer kanse gevat in sy lewe; die onsekere, verlore en vergete seun Konstant (Albert Pretorius) wie net sy ma se aandag en goedkeuring soek; die naïwe aspirerende aktrise Nina (Rolanda Marais) wie wil wegkom uit die kloue van haar ouers en die klein dorpie waar sy woon, en dan nie weet wat om te doen wanneer sy die geleentheid kry nie; die immer-teneergedrukte Masha (Cintaine Schutte) wie ‘n liefdesdriehoek moet handhaaf; die opgewekte filosoof Dr Eugene (Gerben Kamper) wie alles van ‘n afstand waarneem; die onafgewerkte plaasbestuurder Elias (Deon Lotz); sy onderdanige vrou Paulina (Martelize Kolver); die armoedige onderwyser Simon (Geon Nel); en die bekende skrywer Boors (Alyzzander Fourie).
Elkeen van die karakters dra by tot die gevoel van gevangenheid wat die vakansie op die familieplaas onder ‘n vergrootglas bring.
When Elias van Dorne, CEO of the world's largest robotics company, introduces his most powerful invention, Kronos - a super-computer designed to end all wars - it determines that humans are the biggest threat and launches a worldwide attack on mankind.

Between 1913 and 1989 some four million South Africans were forcibly removed from their homes to enforce residential segregation along racial lines. This study records and interprets the memories of some of the Capetonians who were relocated as a result of the infamous Group Areas Act.
Former resients of Windermere, Tramway Road in Sea Point, District Six, Lower Claremont, and Simon's Town narrate their experiences. The work shows how different - even conflicting - versions of popular memories are historically significant for individuals and communities, and for the professionals and academics who work with them.
Most important, it demonstrates how the sharing of oral histories and memories allows people to rebuild a sense of self and community.
