Dead Astronauts
Dead Astronauts | Jeff VanderMeer
10 posts | 5 read | 1 reading | 25 to read
Under the watchful eye of The Company, three characters Grayson, Morse and Chen shapeshifters, amorphous, part human, part extensions of the landscape, make their way through forces that would consume them. A blue fox, a giant fish and language stretched to the limit.

Went to pick up my library holds & next to them was the latest Vandermeer on hold for someone else.
Oh, how I do covet my neighbor's goods.
😈😈

NerdyRev If it helps, I am a huge Vandemeer fan and I thought this was a strange book, even for him. Things begin to take shape, but it takes a long trek through the book to get there. 4d
GrilledCheeseSamurai It is a very strange book. And I absolutely loved it for that. 😍 4d
Hooked_on_books I‘ve been known to ogle the holds of others at the library. Glad I‘m not alone. 4d
saresmoore I hate it when this happens! But I also love it, because it means other people are reading good books. 3d

This was such a weird book. A blue fox, people who are copies but also not. Was there a plot? Hard to say.

I know Jeff Vandermeer is the patron saint of weird these days, but even by those standards, his latest is truly out there. Varying life forms, including a behemoth, a blue fox, a duck with a broken wing and questionable intentions, and three humans (“humans”) try to survive in a dying city, killed by the nefarious Company from his previous book, Borne. Read with an open mind.

Holy moly! I‘m speechless.. I absolutely love these gifts! I‘ve been wanting to read this since it came out. I‘ve been waiting patiently for my library to get their copies in for months now. The wait is over! Fantastic book, super scrumptious chocolate (that I couldn‘t resist trying before I took my picture), and a Krampus card!? Thank you so much @bridge12 for the gifts! And thank you @MaleficentBookDragon for organizing! Happy #Jolabokaflod

StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego This cover is awesome, I can't stop looking at it. Great haul! 3w
DePaepe @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego the inside cover is great too! I‘ll make another post showing it soon 3w

I really hope Jeff Vandermeer melts my brain with this...
#bookmail

readordierachel That cover is melting me brain (in a good way) 1mo
vivastory I feel like I need 3d glasses for this. I'm really looking forward to this though. Read, & loved, Borne over the weekend. 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @vivastory I'm a HUGE Vandermeer fanboy. This book is one of my most anticipated of the year so...yeah. Pretty happy. I loved Borne too. Alot. I could say that for and Vandermeer novel though sooo... 🤷🏼‍♂️😝 1mo

batsy I want to read more of his books. I can't properly describe how the Southern Reach trilogy made me feel but I've been searching for that same feeling from fiction since then. 1mo
twohectobooks I just started playing a game called Control, which really reminds me of the Authority entry of the Southern Reach trilogy. 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @batsy Have you read Borne? It's soooo good. This book is set in the same universe. I don't think you have to read Borne first...its too early in the books for me to say for certain - but I think it would add context? 1mo
GrilledCheeseSamurai @twohectobooks Niiiice. I've had my eye on Control! Definitely a game I think I want to play. 😊 1mo
batsy @GrilledCheeseSamurai I haven't, and I plan to! I've got an arc of Dead Astronauts but I've been wondering if I need to read Borne first. I think I will, for context as you say & to get a better sense of the world he's created :) 1mo

Scheduled for publication in December, Vandermeer's latest, set in the same world as Borne, easily wins trippiest cover of the year. And being a Vandermeer, I imagine the story itself will be an equal experience.

Godpants I am SO EXCITED. 6mo
Kimberlone What a cool designed cover! 6mo
