Editorial Reviews

Review

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"

Beautifully written, virtually hallucinatory work...Connoisseurs of the finest in postmodern fantasy will find it enormously rewarding.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

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, winner of the Damon Knight Memorial Grand Master Award"

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 favorite haunts in fiction.

-- "China Mieville, author of The Last Days of New Paris"

This is fiction to stand alongside that of Calvino and Borges.

-- "The Guardian (London)"
