Zahrah the Windseeker, Nigerian Style

I just learned that Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu has announced the Nigerian publication of her novel, Zahrah the Windseeker. The US edition has been out for a while, but this has to be cool for the author.

And it's appropriate! It's a Nigerian-themed YA novel by a Nigerian/American author published by a Nigerian publisher, Kachifo Limited. I dig it.

You can even buy a copy directly from Kachifo if you're so inclined. It'll set you back a tidy 1000 Naira... Which comes to... about $8.50. I may be wrong on that, though. Math and foreign currency has gotten me in trouble before...

You can check it out at Nnedi's Blog.
