Biafra and the Werelion King by lithriel Biafra and the Werelion King by lithriel
This is a cover I did recently for a steampunk African novel. Can you get any cooler than that? I think not. Had a blast on this one. Love the all-terrain steam train tank.

Awesome!

I have to admit I've read a "steampunk African" story, even if not exactly steampunk.  (I wish I could remember the author and title - it was in the 1980s.)  It took place in a future world where advanced civilization had moved from America/Europe to Africa, and the narrator was a West African (maybe Nigerian) whose specialty was "Africanizing" the plays of Shakespeare, adapting them to the cultural norms of West Africa.  (Though apparently not translating them - the language of his part of Africa was a slightly Africanized English.)  If you happen to be interested, I'll be happy to research this some more and see if I can track down the story.

It's like a werewolf, only a lion, from what I can tell.

That's what I thought, mainly from the cover, but I couldn't be sure cause that could have been just a regular lion and not a werelion
