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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Amid the nightmares that suffuse the narrative, VanderMeer has dreamed up some fantastical creatures.” New York Times
“This is a Russian doll of a novel, with each chapter containing worlds upon nested worlds, all of them dreamlike and dark. In this shattered landscape, VanderMeer explores urgent ideas about capitalism, greed, and natural destruction.” Esquire
"[A] darkly transcendent novel filled with phantasmagoric visions, body horror, and tortured beings traversing a blasted desert hellscape. Think The Last Judgment but with more animals…So terrifying and so compelling.” New York Times Book Review
“The final pages of Jeff VanderMeer’s Dead Astronauts tie everything together, making sense of what came before.” Los Angeles Times
“A work of literary science fiction in which the fate of humanity is at stake.” Vogue
“Takes [a] 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.” Locus
“Vandermeer is a master of literary science fiction, and this may be his best book yet.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Vandermeer’s follow-up to Borne explores the multiple pasts and futures of the City and the sinister Company that twists and destroys countless living things.” Booklist (starred review)
“A relentlessly experimental novel, shifting viewpoints and styles, skipping through time frames and across cosmic distances, changing formats…Despite this complex approach, however, it is utterly accessible.” Toronto Star (Canada)
