About the Author
BENJAMIN PERCY has won a Whiting Award, a Plimpton Prize, two Pushcart Prizes, an NEA fellowship, and the iHeartRadio Award for Best Scripted Podcast. He is the author of the novels The Ninth Metal, The Unfamiliar Garden, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding; three story collections; and an essay collection, Thrill Me. He also writes Wolverine and X-Force for Marvel Comics. He lives in Minnesota with his family.

"Percy offers intriguing theoretical physics, penetrating analysis of human greed, and deeply sympathetic characters. This standout combination of science and psychology is sure to wow SF fans." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"[In The Ninth Metal] debris from a comet drops a fabulously valuable new metal on Northfall, MN., turning it into a bloody, brawling boomtown. Great characters, fine writing, totally engrossing." -- Stephen King on The Ninth Metal

"When Benjamin Percy publishes a novel, I have got to read that novel. The Ninth Metal continues his streak of thrilling, incisive genre-bending goodness. It's a sci-fi novel, a crime novel, and a superhero novel too. Audacious and intelligent and exactly what I was dying to read." -- Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling, on The Ninth Metal

"Whether you choose to think of him as the Elmore Leonard of rural Minnesota or the Stephen King of science fiction, Ben Percy--with his extraordinary and unrelenting eye--dishes up humanity like some kind of otherworldly blue-plate special, at once deeply familiar and wildly new." -- Margaret Stohl, New York Times bestselling author, on The Ninth Metal

"Take one part dystopia, one part sci-fi, two parts apocalypse, then ride them roughshod through a bleak and bloody western, and it still wouldn't get close to what Ben Percy does here, which is blow open the core of humanity's dark heart." -- Marlon James, Booker Prize-winning author of Black Leopard, Red Wolf, on The Ninth Metal

"Mr. Percy has given us a smart twist on the War of the Worlds plot. In H.G. Wells's story, microbes are the key to defeating the Martian war machines. In The Unfamiliar Garden, a different sort of weapon will be necessary. But the seeds of disaster, you might say, are quite literally already with us, just waiting for one more evolutionary jump. Like viruses." -- Wall Street Journal on The Unfamiliar Garden

"Wildly entertaining and highly original mélange of northern Minnesota lore and slam-bang near-future SF action...This is an impressive series starter." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Ninth Metal
