A 2014 Entertainment Weekly Best Book for Fiction

A Kirkus Reviews Pick of 7 Addictive Series

A Library Journal Best Book of 2014

If J. J. Abrams, Margaret Atwood, and Alan Weisman collaborated on a series, it might be this awesome.

This collection includes all three novels in the epic Southern Reach trilogy—Annihilation, Authority, and Acceptance. Praised for its evocative prose, chilling psychological twists, and intriguing story arc, this series has amassed high critical and popular acclaim, with book one landing on the New York Times bestsellers list.

Dive into the mysteries of Area X, a remote and lush terrain that has inexplicably sequestered itself from civilization. Twelve expeditions have gone in, and not a single member of any of them has remained unchanged by the experience—for better or worse.

Editorial Reviews

“I’m loving the Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer. Recommended by an indie bookseller. Creepy and fascinating.” Stephen King, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“VanderMeer’s dreamy narrative, shot through with echoes of Lovecraft, Orwell, and Kafka, is compulsively readable.” Entertainment Weekly
“Chilling.” New York Times
“Successfully creepy, an old-style gothic horror novel set in a not-too-distant future. The best bits turn your mind inside out.” Washington Post
“Original and beautiful, maddening and magnificent.” Warren Ellis, author of Crooked Little Vein
