Nnedi Okorafor, author of Zahrah the Windseeker, Who Fears Death and Akata Witch has a forthcoming novel Lagoon scheduled to be published in March 2014. This will be the first of her three books to be published by Hodder & Stoughton. Lagoon will be Nnedi Okorafor's second adult novel. Here's a bit about her forthcoming novel:

When a massive object crashes into the ocean off the coast of Lagos, Nigeria's most populous city, three people find themselves running a race against time to save the country they love and the world itself ... from itself. Lagoon expertly juggles multiple points of view and crisscrossing narratives with prose that is at once propulsive and poetic, combining everything from superhero comics to Nigerian mythology to tie together a story about a city consuming itself.

At its heart a story about humanity at the crossroads between the past, present, and future, Lagoon touches on political and philosophical issues in the rich tradition of the very best science fiction, and ultimately asks us to consider the things that bind us together - and the things that make us human.
