Product description


Unsettling, erudite, dark ... Ambergris is one of my favourite haunts in fiction (China Miéville)

This is fiction to stand alongside that of Calvino and Borges (Guardian)

VanderMeer keeps going deeper, and finding new forms of gold


Beautifully written, virtually hallucinatory work . . . enormously rewarding (Publishers Weekly)

Book Description

Jeff VanderMeer has been acclaimed by authors such as Lauren Beukes, Richard Morgan, Michael Moorcock and more. By turns sensuous and terrifying, this collection of four linked novellas is the perfect introduction to VanderMeer’s vividly imagined worlds.
