In the spring of 1914, two college friends, Thomas “Tiggy” McStuart and Hans von Gotha, one British and the other German, find themselves on opposite sides of the impending war. Tiggy’s dream of becoming a barrister and Hans’ plan to receive his doctorate are quickly fading. As Hans leaves for Germany after being conscripted, he realizes their friendship might never be the same. Tiggy, feeling compelled to defend the crown, joins the London Light Infantry where he excels as a sniper in World War I and is eventually captured by the Germans. Meanwhile, Hans completes express doctorate training and is sent to serve at a field hospital in France. The lives of the two friends reconnect in a way neither of them thought possible. Based on real-life events, Legends of the Black Orchid follows Tiggy and Hans through World War I and the start of World War II. It depicts how circumstances and the influences of the Black Orchid, a society formed by the royal families of Europe, bring them together as one, ultimately making them part of an exclusive intelligence unit that becomes the platform on which the British and American governments form a cooperative base for espionage.

In October 1972, our Czech-written book Literatury eerne Afriky (Literatures of Black Mrica) was published in Prague, presenting a survey of an extensive field. The publication, which was signed at that time by all three authors, differed from most contemporary introductions to the study of Mrican literatures in a threefold way: a) The authors attempted to cover various literacy and literary efforts in the area roughly delimited by Senegal in the west, Kenya in the east, Lake Chad in the north and the Cape in the south. We were well aware-even at that time-that neither technically nor linguistically would it be possible to cover all literary efforts within that area. We did try, however, to include in our survey both the literacies and literatures written in the Indo-European linguae francae (English, French, Portuguese) and in at least several of the major African languages of the area. We did not attempt an exhaustive description, but wished, rather, to show the mutual relationships which emerge, if the literatures of thii\ area, written either in the major linguae francae or in the African languages, are studied not as isolated phenomena, but as mutually complementary features. b) As two of us were linguists and one was a literary historian, we did not limit our analysis of the developing literacies and literatures to the purely cultural and literary aspects.
