A messianic blue fox who slips through warrens of time and space on a mysterious mission. A homeless woman haunted by a demon who finds the key to all things in a strange journal. A giant leviathan of a fish, centuries old, who hides a secret, remembering a past that may not be its own.

Three ragtag rebels waging an endless war for the fate of the world against an all-powerful corporation. A raving madman who wanders the desert lost in the past, haunted by his own creation: an invisible monster whose name he has forgotten and whose purpose remains hidden.

Jeff VanderMeer’s Dead Astronauts presents a city with no name of its own where, in the shadow of the all-powerful Company, lives—human and otherwise—converge in terrifying and miraculous ways. At stake: the fate of the future, the fate of Earth—all the Earths.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is a Russian doll of a novel, with each chapter containing worlds upon nested worlds, all of them dreamlike and dark. In this shattered landscape, VanderMeer explores urgent ideas about capitalism, greed, and natural destruction.” Esquire
“Jeff VanderMeer has been called ‘the weird Thoreau’ for his facility with ‘psychedelic nature writing.’ If you’re one of the many who enjoyed his Southern Reach trilogy, his new book, Dead Astronauts—a work of literary science fiction in which the fate of humanity is at stake—will be right up your alley. Vogue
“Vandermeer is a master of literary science fiction, and this may be his best book yet.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Vandermeer’s follow-up to Borne explores the multiple pasts and futures of the City and the sinister Company that twists and destroys countless living things.” Booklist (starred review)
