FoxTrot relies on third-party "Spotlight metadata importers" to index file formats not natively supported; and to display found files in those formats, in a better way than a plain-text version, it also relies on third-party "Quick Look plugins".

Some epub applications may include these plugins; or may find them as independent plugins.

You may try these one, for example:
