                       SOUTH

“South is an absolute blinder of a book. With its cracking pace, unforgettable characters, deliciously gruesome premise and you-won’t-see-them-coming twists, if this doesn’t make ‘book of the year’ shortlists, I will eat my Stetson. The Sisters Brothers meets The Stand, it’s a post-apocalyptic genre game-changer.” - Sarah Lotz, author of The Three

*co-written with fellow writer Diane Awerbuck under the pen name 'Frank Owen'.

                   THE SPACE RACE

An unauthorised nuclear blast beyond belief at Vastrap Airbase outside Upington not only winds up the Americans, but also launches Africa’s first spacecraft. Pro­pelled by an engine harnessing the power of a nuclear bomb never disarmed in the eighties, the rocket leaves Earth without its pilot or crew. But how did this spaceship, designed by the previous government to extend the Afrikaner’s history as a nation of pioneers, survive? And more pressingly, who’s working its joystick?
