The Southern Reach Trilogy
Jeff VanderMeer



A near-future trilogy, here handsomely packaged in one volume, which has been my single most unexpected "find" of the year. The first book, Annihilation, found me intrigued, yet cautious. Imagine the unspeakable horror of John Carpenter's 1982 remake of The Thing. Authority, the second volume, was an absolute revelation. To me it recalled the institutional paranoia of 1975's classic political thriller Three Days of the Condor — and paranoia is always relevant! I have been savoring Book Three, Acceptance, for weeks, maybe longer, not wanting the ride to end. Bradbury, Matheson, Sturgeon, and too many others to mention here, are the godfathers of VanderMeer's melange of science fiction, fantasy and horror. Please read! —Recommended by Jeff, City Lights Books
