Review

Praise for the Ambergris Trilogy

“Somewhere at the intersection of pulp and surrealism, drawing on the very best of both traditions, is Jeff VanderMeer’s Ambergris. Unsettling, erudite, and shot through with unexpected humor...Ambergris is one of my favourite haunts in fiction” ―China Mieville on City of Saints and Madmen

“This is fiction to stand alongside that of Calvino and Borges.” ―The Guardian on City of Saints and Madmen

“Make the most of the tapestry of tales and visions before you. It is a rare treasure, to be tasted with both relish and respect. It’s what you’ve been looking for.” ―Michael Moorcock on City of Saints and Madmen

City of Saints and Madmen packs so much literary and emotional matter into the confines of one city...VanderMeer keeps going deeper, and finding new forms of gold.”―Locus Magazine on City of Saints and Madmen

“As complicated, impressive, and compelling as anything he has written...Twisted, darkly funny, and ultimately rewarding.” ―Jon Courtenay Grimwood, The Guardian on Shriek: An Afterword

“In the hands of a brilliant writer like Jeff VanderMeer, writing fantasy can be a means of serious artistic expression. In VanderMeer’s hands, it is also playful, poignant, and utterly, wildly, imaginative.” ―Peter Straub on Shriek: An Afterword

‘Like some delicious mash-up of H.P. Lovecraft, Mervyn Peake, and L. Frank Baum, but with his own verbal dexterity and perverse ingenuity…[An] affecting narrative about love, art, sibling rivalry, commerce, history, and some really nasty ’shrooms.” ―Paul Di Filippo, Washington Post on Shriek: An Afterword

“Wildly inventive...With literary stylings, a complex plot, and ideas that lesser writers could not imagine, it further establishes him as the finest fantasist of his generation.”―Rick Klaw, Austin Chronicle on Shriek: An Afterword

"Here is a desert island book, a tale you can lose yourself in for days, a novel of character in which the setting--the magnificently gritty city-state named Ambergris--proves as the light fails to be the finest character of all."
―Gene Wolfe on Shriek: An Afterword


“Fungal noir. Steampunk delirium. Paranoid spy thriller, quite literally, on ‘shrooms.” ―Richard K. Morgan, author of Altered Carbon on Finch

“Utterly original. Utterly convincing. Utterly engrossing.”―Lev Grossman on Finch

"A fungalpunk nightmare pullulating with dark, phantasmagorical transformations...A stylish detective story, a perverse example of the New Weird fantasy subgenre, and an effective metaphor for the dehumanising effects of...totalitarian regimes." ―Eric Brown, The Guardian, on Finch

“Intriguing and highly original...wriggles from the grip of easy categorization. It's full of fantastical elements and genuinely humane ones, too. VanderMeer can write beautifully [and]...insightfully.”―Victor Lavalle, Washington Post, on Finch

“I would have sworn you can’t unite noir and fantasy, and oh how gloriously wrong Jeff VanderMeer proved me to be...I loved the meeting of the grime and the sublime and oh so beautifully crafted. Rarely has a novel got it all. Think Cormac McCarthy, via David Goodis, with an amazing nod to Lovecraft and still that doesn’t quite capture the spell this novel casts from the off.” ―Ken Bruen on Finch

Chinatown meets Naked Lunch with a sprinkling of Tetsuo II: The Bodyhammer. A must for fans of fantasy, noir, great writing, or, of course, fungus.” ―Joe Abercrombie on Finch

“Told in a pitch-perfect voice and steeped in the unrelenting menace authentic to the best works of noir, Finch is a wonderful, sad, brutal, and beautiful book. A tour de force.” ―Paul Tremblay
