Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Dead Astronauts

"[A] darkly transcendent novel filled with phantasmagoric visions, body horror and tortured beings traversing a blasted desert hellscape . . . terrifying and so compelling."
CHELSEA LEU, The New York Times Book Review

"A Mobius strip of a novel, with each chapter containing worlds upon nested worlds, all of them dreamlike and dark. In this shattered landscape, VanderMeer explores urgent ideas about capitalism, greed, and natural destruction."
ADRIENNE WESTENFELD, Esquire

"VanderMeer is a master of literary science fiction, and this may be his best book yet."
Kirkus (starred review)

"For any adventurous fan of sci-fi, fantasy, and/or horror, this book offers not only a rewarding read but, like,
a thing to possess."
ROBIN SLOAN, author of Sourdough

Praise for Jeff VanderMeer

“Jeff VanderMeer’s
Southern Reach Trilogy was an ever-creeping map of the apocalypse; with Borne he continues his investigation into the malevolent grace of the world, and it’s a thorough marvel.”
COLSON WHITEHEAD, author of Nickel Boys

“Creepy and fascinating.”
STEPHEN KING, on The Southern Reach Trilogy

“[Jeff VanderMeer] makes the horrific beautiful.”
NISI SHAWL, The Seattle Times, on Annihilation

“Unsettling and un-put-down-able―like an old-fashioned adventure story, only weirder, beautifully written and not at all old-fashioned.”
KAREN JOY FOWLER, BookPage, on Annihilation

“More than just a horror novel; there’s something Poe-like in this tightening, increasingly paranoid focus. But where Poe kept his most vicious blows relatively oblique, VanderMeer drives them deep―albeit in a corkscrewing way that is not less cruel and exquisite.”
N.K. JEMISIN, The New York Times Book Review, on Authority

2.0 out of 5 stars Stains on the pages.
Reviewed in Canada on February 21, 2021
Not about the quality of the book, more about the state it came in. The first one came with an ink stain on the top of the pages. Returned it, ordered a new one. Same stain but on the bottom of the pages. Is this a feature of book? A weird poetic stain? Or is this just bad manutention? I am keeping the second one but seriously, get your stuff together.
