There's another new release for 2013. This time from Nnedi Okorafor, author of Zahrah the Windseeker. Kabu Kabu, a collection of short stories published by Prime Books, is scheduled for release in October. Here's the synopsis via The Wahala Zone:
Kabu Kabu - unregistered, illegal Nigerian taxis - generally get you where you need to go, but Nnedi Okorafor's Kabu Kabu takes the reader to exciting, fantastic, magical, occasionally dangerous, and always imaginative locations. This debut short story collection by award-winning author Nnedi Okorafor includes notable previously-published short work, a new novella co-written with New York Times bestselling author Alan Dean Foster, and a brief forward by Whoopi Goldberg.
I'm loving the cover - especially the use of the license plate - and definitely sounds like it will be an interesting read. Yet, another Nnedi Okorafor novel to add to my ever-growing wish list.
