Dhasi Mwale

Dhasi says she likes to “play pretend when no one is watching.” And the result is stories that readily engage the readers. She has won the Zambian short story prize and hopes to publish more.

Forget Me Not” is a comical tale featuring the carefree and attractive character Malumbo. He has a talent for hexing chocolate bars with magic-potion spells. His girlfriend, Niza, finds that the potions are unpredictable and, sure enough, the magic gets out of hand. Malumbo will have to settle his own problems in order to clear up the mess he’s inadvertently made.

The result is comedy in the full sense of the term: farcical elements that provide humor in a story that could have ended tragically but, instead, achieves a resolution that restores a hopeful balance to life.

Welcome to Bewildering Stories, Dhasi. We hope to hear from you again soon and often!
