Caras e caros colegas,
Segue divulgação do recém-lançado livro Tempos de fúria: memórias do massacre de Homoíne, 18 de Julho de 1987 (Edições Colibri, Lisboa, 2018), cujo autor, Hassane Armando, é um civil sobrevivente do referido massacre ocorrido durante a guerra civil em Moçambique (1977-1992) e que hoje em dia é professor de Língua Portuguesa na escola secundária de Homoíne.
Colleagues: I have lost track of Fernando Campos, who in the 1980s & 1990s, published two important articles in _Africa (Sao Paulo)_: one on the death of Queen Jinga and another on Pedro IV of Kongo. Any information willl be welcomed, on or off list.
Thanks in advance, José
