"Annalee Newitz has conjured the rarest, most exciting thing: a future that's truly new ... a terrific novel and a tremendous vision."
Convenience Store Woman (2018)
"This is a story about what’s normal and not, a drama played on a stage so violently plain it becomes as vivid and surprising as an alien planet. I loved Convenience Store Woman: its brevity, its details, its opinions about life."

Charlie Jane Anders
"Like a classic from another timeline This book has notes of Ursula K. Le Guin and Philip Pullman."
