Waterstones Says

Set amidst a divided human colony on a planet beset by all-too-familiar threats of ecological and social breakdown, The City in the Middle of the Night is anthropological science fiction at its most inventive and original. As well as a thrilling hunt for the truth that lies in the dark, Ander’s novel meditates on politics, community and how we live alongside others.

Signed Bookplate Edition with sprayed edges.

Shortlisted for the Arthur C. Clarke Award 2020

If you control our sleep, then you can own our dreams... And from there, it's easy to control our entire lives.

From the brilliant mind of Charlie Jane Anders comes a new novel of Kafkaesque futurism. Set on a planet that has fully definitive, never-changing zones of day and night, with ensuing extreme climates of endless, frigid darkness and blinding, relentless light, humankind has somehow continued apace-though the perils outside the built cities are rife with danger as much as the streets below.

But in a world where time means only what the ruling government proclaims, and the levels of light available are artificially imposed to great consequence, lost souls and disappeared bodies are shadow-bound and savage, and as common as grains of sand. And one such pariah, sacrificed to the night, but borne up by time and a mysterious bond with an enigmatic beast, will rise to take on the entire planet - before it can crumble beneath the weight of human existence.

“A slow start with characters that keep you there”

A very well written book, with an interesting premise, let down by the slow start for me. That being said persistence is well worth it. The characters grow, they pull you in. Full political intrigue, betrayal, but... More

“An enjoyable dystopia”

January is a tidally locked planet - like the moon, one face is forever light, turned to the sun, the other dark - facing space. On this seemingly unpromising world humans have made their home - evidently fleeing from... More
