Waterstones Says

A wickedly subversive tale of abstract, shape-shifting creatures battling the authoritarian Company, Dead Astronauts whirls with manic invention.

Under the watchful eye of The Company, three characters - Grayson, Morse and Chen - shapeshifters, amorphous, part human, part extensions of the landscape, make their way through forces that would consume them. A blue fox, a giant fish and language stretched to the limit.

A messianic blue fox who slips through warrens of time and space on a mysterious mission. A homeless woman haunted by a demon who finds the key to all things in a strange journal. A giant leviathan of a fish, centuries old, who hides a secret, remembering a past that may not be its own.

Three ragtag rebels waging an endless war for the fate of the world against an all-powerful corporation. A raving madman who wanders the desert lost in the past, haunted by his own creation: an invisible monster whose name he has forgotten and whose purpose remains hidden.

Jeff VanderMeer's Dead Astronauts presents a City with no name of its own where, in the shadow of the all-powerful Company, lives human and otherwise converge in terrifying and miraculous ways. At stake: the fate of the future, the fate of Earth - all the Earths.

“A return the the world of Borne”

Dead Astronauts is a tour de force of the story telling art.

A story that swept me along, even when I wasn't one hundred percent sure of what was going on. This is a book that takes a certain commitment of time... More

“Ambitious.”

In some of Jeff Vandermeer's novels he pushes boundaries. In others he blurs boundaries. In Dead Astronauts, using the acid, solvent ink from his fountain pen (or so I like to imagine!), he dissolves boundaries... More
