    I love the fact that Deon is a South African author that writes stories set in South Africa. Many of the South African novelists I’ve encountered over the years prefer to set their stories in exotic locations outside the continent, which is unsurprising because many of them live outside South Africa.

    But Deon embraces his South African heritage. Think about it. ‘Fever’ is a post-apocalyptic tale in the vein of The Stand, and it is also set in South Africa. Do you know how easy it would have been for the author to put the story in London, New York, or any of the other major cities?

    Deon’s dedication to his home adds an element of authenticity that I appreciate.
