Supernatural ghosts and tricksters exist for many cultures. The tricksters often match wits with their victims, doling out humorous to vindictive comeuppance.
In this folktale-style vignette, a narrator relates her childhood run in with the trickster ghost of the village’s former sorcerer. As a 9 y.o. girl on a mission to deliver a basket of eggs to her aunt, the narrator holds her ground in a stand off with the ghost of the Long Juju Man. The stakes are the basket of eggs . . .
This tale appears in Okorafor’s anthology, Kabu Kabu by Prime Books.
