Reviews

Praise for The Strange Bird

"With hallucinatory imagery and expressive prose, this companion novella to Borne is beautiful and bleak, painful and rewarding in equal measure." --Booklist (starred)

"A lyrical if dark-hearted sidenote to VanderMeer's wonderfully inventive dystopian novel Borne . . . VanderMeer writes circles around most fantasists at work today." --Kirkus


Praise for Borne

"The conceptual elements in VanderMeer's fiction are so striking that the firmness with which he cinches them to his characters' lives is often overlooked . . . Borne is VanderMeer's trans-species rumination on the theme of parenting . . . [Borne] insists that to live in an age of gods and sorcerers is to know that you, a mere person, might be crushed by indifferent forces at a moment's notice, then quickly forgotten. And that the best thing about human nature might just be its unwillingness to surrender to the worst side of itself." --Laura Miller, The New Yorker

"Borne, Jeff VanderMeer's lyrical and harrowing new novel, may be the most beautifully written, and believable, post-apocalyptic tale in recent memory . . . [VanderMeer] outdoes himself in this visionary novel shimmering with as much inventiveness and deliriously unlikely, post-human optimism as Borne himself." --Elizabeth Hand, Los Angeles Times

"VanderMeer's apocalyptic vision, with its mix of absurdity, horror, and grace, can't be mistaken for that of anyone else. Inventive, engrossing, and heartbreaking, Borne finds [VanderMeer] at a high point of creative accomplishment." --Michael Berry, San Francisco Chronicle
