Zoo City by Lauren Beukes

Whether you love it or not, the John Picacio cover for Lauren Beukes’ Zoo City got people talking when it was first revealed. Wrapped inside that cover is a novel that sounds worth the fuss. Pulling on Beukes’ background living in South Africa, Zoo City takes Urban Fantasy from the overused settings of New York City, London or Chicago and drops it down in Africa, a drive for diversity that looks to add some much-needed variety to the genre. Using the widget above, you can get a sneak peak at Zoo City, which releases September, 2010 in Australia and the UK, and January 2011 in North America.
