Zoo City is in the 50 Coolest Book Covers
The ShortList.com put up a post on their 50 coolest book covers, including the super-iconic covers for The Godfather, American Psycho, The Stranger and A Clockwork Orange – and Joey Hi-Fi’s Zoo City is ranked among them!
“Like a record sleeve, a book cover is a crucial element of the reading experience.
It’s the first thing you see, and a great cover can draw you in and persuade you to start that journey of discovery, page by page. We’ve picked 50 of the coolest for you to enjoy: some are iconic; some are clever; some are beautiful; some are scary and many have transcended their original home to become as famous as the book itself.”

Interestingly, Joey (aka Dale Halvorsen) and I are now tied on the awards for Zoo City. I won The Arthur C Clarke Award and the Kitschies Red Tentacle for the wordy bits and he’s won the BSFA Award and the Grand Prix de l’Imaginaire for the picture parts.
