Staff Picks: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

It’s Locus’s 2019 Holiday Countdown of Staff Picks!

One of top titles of the year is Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer. Ian Mond says, “Going as far as back his debut, Dradin, In Love and, more recently, his extraordinary (and hugely successful) Southern Reach Trilogy, VanderMeer has built a career on narratives that explore the limits of fiction, both in terms of language and form. His latest novel, Dead Astronauts, set in the same Universe as Borne (2017), takes that sense of invention and playfulness to the extreme, giving us a modern and post-modern tour-de-force unlike any main­stream science fiction novel written over the last two decades.”

You can read Ian’s review in in the December 2019 issue of Locus.
