This collection of short stories in the Daffo variety of Ron werewritten and given to me in 1994 by Mr. Amos Emmanuel, a youngman from Daffo. I came to know Amos when I did research in theRon country for the Frankfurt-Maiduguri Joint Research Project,which was funded by the German Research Foundation. I was thencollecting word lists and texts - many of them still unpublished. Amoscame by with a notebook of handwritten stories in Ron. I typed themup, but unfortunately I later lost the English translations and I alsodidn’t tape-record them. Still, I think it will be nice to publish them.I hope the people who still speak the language will be able to read thisfine specimen of Ron Literature and will enjoy it. I also hope thatmore young people like Amos will start writing down stories and other samples of literature. Don’t stop using your language, teach it to your children and make it last!Today is Amos’ birthday. May he enjoy it and see many more happy birthdays in the years to come!Uwe Seibert,
