This book is bursting with ideas and vision showing the potential of the writer, an enjoyable read but the plot & characters are not as well developed as his later works which I have enjoyed immensely.

An early work by Asher, Africa Zero comprises two novellas set in a distant future where the Collector, a lone cyborg with attitude, wages war on an army of religious fanatics. A nice brisk read, this book has the Asher trademarks of high octane action and plenty of big explosions. Fans of his Polity series will recognise the reptilian sauramen as forerunners of the dracomen in later books, but these prototypes are more entertaining. Few science fiction stories are ever set in Africa, let alone feature mammoths, glaciation, vampires and giant crocodiles as well, so this is one to remember.

A short novel. Meant to be a duo with Africa Plus One. Shades of Jurassic Park. A "Terminator"-style protagonist roams around in a post-apocalypse Africa, protecting a collection of gene-modified lab animals bloodsucking vampires, mammoths etc. Prose + scenery so dessicated, you may need a beer to offset the dust. Some emotional complexity.
