Product description

Review

A remarkable work of dystopian imagination . . .a gorgeously realised world that feels authentic . . . [Miller] writes exquisitely and presents us with a future that is terrifyingly plausible but never less than mesmerising . . . It's too early in the year to begin assembling 2018's 'best of' list, but Blackfish City has got to be an early contender. (STARBURST)

Miller gives us an incisive and beautifully written story of love, revenge, and the power (and failure) of family in a scarily plausible future. Blackfish City simmers with menace and heartache, suspense and wonder. Plus, it has lots of action and a great cast of characters. Not to mention an orca and a polar bear! (Ann Leckie, Hugo, Nebula and Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author)

Miller excels at depicting a metropolis bursting at the seams and populated by both refugees and the elite. Blackfish City is a compelling dystopian thriller (GUARDIAN)

Miller's poetic prose gives this dystopian story a taut, lyrical edge (ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY)

A floating Arctic city; nano-bonded orcas and polar bears; an Earth violently reshaped by the mistakes we're making right now . . . I haven't been this swept away by imagination and worldbuilding since Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials. A gorgeous, queer, muscular novel (Carmen Maria Machado, National Book Award-nominated author of HER BODY AND OTHER PARTIES)

Blackfish City is an exhilarating tour of a post-catastrophe future that's both fantastical and eerily convincing. Imagine The Yiddish Policeman's Union cross-bred with Snowcrash and you'll get an inkling of the imaginative horsepower on display here. A saltwater-splashed refuge for misfits and cutthroats, teeming with mystery and intrigue, Blackfish City is a place you might never want to live in - but as a reader, you won't want to leave (Adam Sternbergh, author of THE BLINDS)

You know it's a good story when the watery death of the world we know, and the nanobonded orca, aren't even the most interesting things going on! (N. K. Jemisin)

An urgent tale imploring us to look at the ties between technology, race, gender and class privilege . . . Surprisingly heartwarming . . . an action-packed science fiction thriller (WASHINGTON POST)

An ambitious, imaginative, and big-hearted dystopian ensemble story that's by turns elegiac and angry. . . Miller has crafted a thriller that unflinchingly examines the ills of urban capitalism. [the city] is a beautiful and brutal character in its own right, rendered in poetic interludes. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

Blackfish City is a triumph. Thrilling, heartfelt and ferociously political, it is the kind of fiction we need more of if we are to survive the climate catastrophe that is already enveloping our world (James Bradley, author of CLADE)

Book Description

A visceral, fearlessly imagined future, rich with alarmingly real detail; 'Blackfish City is a place you might never want to live in - but as a reader, you won't want to leave' Adam Sternbergh, author of The Blinds
