Biography & autobiography


With Area X, VanderMeer has created an immersive and wonderfully realized world; I wouldn’t be surprised if he revisits it. If so, I’ll happily sign up for the next expedition.


At different times the best haunted lighthouse story ever written, a deeply unsettling tale of first contact, a book about death, a book about obsession and loss, a book about the horrifying experience of confronting an intelligence far greater and far stranger than our own, and a book about sea monsters.

Lock In

Lock In is science fiction for the masses. Count me as one of them.

Starbust Magazine : Acceptance (August 14, 2014)

It is concise but never robotic, intelligent yet never pretentious and frightening but always beautiful.


This is genuinely potent and dream-haunting writing. VanderMeer has arrived.

Lock In

Scalzi has the pot boiling in exactly the way you're supposed to in a proper procedural.

The Ripper Affair

The Ripper Affair is a diverting popcorn read: messy, granular, and inclined to leave distracting bits clinging to your hair. It’s not deep, and at times it’s downright annoying—but mostly it’s satisfying fun.

Tigerman: A novel

This fantastic book deserves to be widely read and long remembered.


If you're into oddball reads this is truly the one for you. If you're easily frustrated by the lack of explanation in a story you'll want to steer clear.

Tigerman: A novel

It's not just good, it's shake-a-granny good. The kind of good that makes you wonder why every book isn't this smart and joyous and beautiful and heartbreaking.


Annihilation is the first of a trilogy, so there may well be more answers ahead. There will definitely be more mysteries.


Prototype more than lives up to the high expectations fans of the first novel will have.

Last Orders

Some readers may find the conclusion messy and unsatisfying, but that’s part of Turtledove’s argument: War often is.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow

He has created a towering, trippy, potent first novel with a delicious and distinctive voice.

Tomorrow and Tomorrow

Vividly and beautifully written but extraordinarily bleak.


Robogenesis is wide open for a sequel, more or less setting up a giant confrontation between multiple big bads with the good guys finally teaming up to try saving what little remains of the human race.

The Man with the Compound Eyes

The Man With The Compound Eyes is an entrancing, multi-faceted elegy for a beautiful world like the imaginary island of Wayo Wayo, a lost world, a world we have sent away, a world we need to find and reclaim.

Memory of Water

Memory of Water is impressive in the warning it presents rather than the story it tells of a world gone dry.

Cibola Burn

With each book in this series James S.A. Corey continues to prove why The Expanse is the best (or at least my favorite) space-based Science Fiction series currently being published.
