Download this zip file. Double-click it to extract the Quicklook generator - it'll be a Lego-brick shaped icon called "epub.qlgenerator" or just "epub" if you have configured Finder to hide file extensions.

Select the file icon and click Edit>Copy.

Now click Go>Go to folder...

A sheet will drop down saying "Go to the folder:"

Type in (without the quotes) "/Library/QuickLook/" and click Go.

If that succeeds, it'll show the folder containing other installed Quicklook plugins. Click Edit>Paste.

You may get prompted for an administrator name and password. Enter them.

That should have installed the plugin. As the README says, there are a couple of ways to make the Mac start using it - logging out and in is simple. Rebooting is another option. The last option is to open Terminal.app and type in:

Code:
qlmanage -r
and hit return. (That's what I do.) That will tell 'quicklookd' to rescan all the Quicklook folders for new plugins.
