From science fiction visionary Annalee Newitz comes The Terraformers, a sweeping, uplifting, and illuminating exploration of the future.

Destry's life is dedicated to terraforming Sask-E. As part of the Environmental Rescue Team, she cares for the planet and its burgeoning eco-systems as her parents and their parents did before her.

But the bright, clean future they're building comes under threat when Destry discovers a city full of people that shouldn't exist, hidden inside a massive volcano.

As she uncovers more about their past, Destry begins to question the mission she's devoted her life to, and must make a choice that will reverberate through Sask-E's future for generations to come.

A science fiction epic for our times and a love letter to our future, The Terraformers will take you on a journey spanning thousands of years and exploring the triumphs, strife, and hope that find us wherever we make our home.


'The Terraformers is so engaging, you could almost miss the pyrotechnic worldbuilding and bone-deep intelligence. Newitz continues doing some of the best work in the field' James S. A. Corey

'A complete reimagining of the great galactic story of terraformers. Startling fun!' Kim Stanley Robinson


'Newitz always sees to the heart of complex systems and breaks them down with poetic ferocity' N. K. Jemisin

“How many artificially bred animals with sentience does it take to change a planet?”

What a nutty book this is. Nutty in a good way as bonkers, funny and unexpected. The terraforming novel is a well-worn sci-fi trope - Kim Stanley Robinson’s Mars trilogy, the gold standard perhaps, is by turns... More

“Enjoyable and ultimately uplifting terraforming adventure...”

In common with many sci fi authors, Newitz is highly critical of the capitalist economic model. It’s a system that Newitz roundly critiques in both Autonomous and The Terraformers. In this far, far future adventure –... More
