ABSTRACT
This article focuses on African literature over the last thirty years with reference to Heinemann African Writers' Series. The Series was duly launched in 1962, with four titles: "Things Fall Apart" and "No Larger at Ease," by Chinua Achebe; "Burning Grass," by Cyprian Ekwensi and "Zambia Shall be Free," by Kenneth Kaunda. Thirty-five titles were published in the first five years; by 1970, eighty books had appeared under the imprint of the Series. Today, that figure stands at well over two hundred and includes almost all the leading names of African literature.
