Incredulous Moshoeshoe and the Lightning Bird
Nelson Mandela is about to die. Again. Black militants and white nationalists prepare for war as a politician’s daughter is killed in mysterious circumstances. Incredulous Moshoeshoe—Goth DJ and part-time isangoma—is hired to find out what really happened.
Forced to partner with a tragically uncool white Pentecostal preacher, Incredulous must use his knowledge of local lore, his occult powers and his connections in the alternative scene to prevent a South African civil war.
Incredulous Moshoeshoe and the Lightning Bird is like Frank Peretti making out with Samuel L Jackson at a Black Panther rally / revival meeting. It’s Dracula for DJs, Supernatural for the subcontinent, The Number One Goth Divination Agency nobody asked for but everybody deserves. It’s Afrocentric urban fantasy littered with onyx Easter-egg homages to horror classics, and monsters as fresh as a highveld thunderstorm.
If you love music, myth, and mad stories, you’re gonna like this book. And if you want more Africa in your urban fantasy, you might just love it.
