A is for Alien is award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan’s first collection devoted entirely to her science-fiction work. It includes the critically acclaimed novelette Riding the White Bull, along with seven other tales of a less-than-utopian future. Ranging from the wastelands and mountains of Mars to the streets of a late twenty-first century Manhattan, from the moons of Europa and Saturn to an iceless Antarctica, these tales bring Kiernan’s trademark brand of the eco-gothic to bear on what it means to be human and the paths and decisions that may face mankind only a little farther along.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Known for dark fantasy that skates the edge of horror, Kiernan turns to science fiction with equally unsettling effects in these eight stories.” Publishers Weekly
“Kiernan’s style relies on clarity in prose, the extraordinary related as if it were everyday, and a subtlety that belies her disturbing imagery. The eight stories in this slim volume are, in short, exquisite containers for the strange paths of her imagined futures. In reading these pieces, you become other, and the better for it.” Booklist
