Ambergris

From the author of Borne and Annihilation comes the one-volume hardcover reissue of his cult classic Ambergris Trilogy.

Before Area X, there was Ambergris. Jeff VanderMeer conceived what would become his first cult classic series of speculative works: the Ambergris Trilogy. Now, for the first time ever, the story of the sprawling metropolis of Ambergris is collected into a single volume, including City of Saints and Madmen, Shriek: An Afterword, and Finch.

    I read City of Saints & Madmen in a combination of the ARC provided by Edelweiss and the paperback I've had for a few years. Never had copies of the other two, so those were exclusively the ARC. Dense...

    Over fifteen years ago the experience of reading City of Saints and Madmen overturned my world - politely, but surely, with the fungal noise of a mushroom-door opening. It is so, so gratifying to see ...
