Incomplete Solutions by Wole Talabi is the fourth book in The Harvester Series. It will contain a series of short stories, two novelletes and one novella.
For those wondering, a novelette is generally considered as between 7,500 and 17,000 words, whereas a novella is 17,000 to 40,000 words. This can get confusing, we understand.
This release will also include personal notes from Wole on each of the stories.

They’ve also released the following statement from Wole himself:
“From the bustling streets of Lagos to the icy moons of Jupiter, the stories in Incomplete Solutions explore accelerating technology, complex histories, diverse beliefs and human potential from my own unique perspective.
This collection contains both previously published stories and stories that are exclusive to this collection. Among the new stories is a science-fiction novella “Incompleteness Theories”, in which an international team led by a troubled Nigerian physicist attempt to create teleportation technology, with unsettling results. The previously published stories include stories that have never appeared online before and others that have seen wide circulation, such as “A Short History of Migration in Five Fragments of You”, which was longlisted for the British Science Fiction Association award, “Parse. Error. Reset.” which won the AMC/Motherboard Post-Humans story contest, and “Wednesday’s Story” which was a finalist for best short story at the Nommo Awards.
Incomplete Solutions contains 17 short stories, 2 novelettes, and 1 novella, as well as art and notes on some of the stories for the bonus material section. Some readers may find the collection reminiscent of award-winning Nnedi Okorafor’s Kabu-Kabu: Stories, with notes of Phillip K. Dick filtered through my own distinct imagination. Incomplete Solutions collects stories from the first chapter of my writing career, that I believe are evocative, philosophical, subversive, and exciting. I hope readers enjoy reading the collection as much as I have enjoyed creating it.”
