Award-winning novelist and editor Jeff VanderMeer has had his work translated into twenty languages and has appeared in numerous major anthologies, including the Library of America’s Modern Fantastic Tales. He is here tonight with a dystopian, visionary new novel, Annihilation (FSG Originals) – the first of a projected Southern Reach trilogy. “A tense and chilling psychological thriller about an unraveling expedition and the strangeness within us. A little Kubrick, a lot Lovecraft, the novel builds with an unbearable tension and a claustrophobic dread that linger long afterward. I loved it.” – Lauren Beukes.
