Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy #1) by Jeff VanderMeer
Annihilation (Southern Reach Trilogy #1)

Chris Haggqvist, June 3, 2014

This book is absolutely a must read for any fans of classic science fiction and horror. It is eloquently written and a real page turner. In its evocation of atmosphere and its execution it reminded me a lot of Roadside Picnic by the Strugatsky brothers. It unfolds in a brilliant fashion and I am eagerly awaiting the sequels.

Easily one of the finest political and sociological science fiction books in recent history, this has one several awards already and deserves them all. If you like classic writers like Ursula k le guin and Iain banks you will surely enjoy!

Some of the best science fiction from the golden age in a gorgeous boxed set and printed by LOA. How could you go wrong?

The Dog Stars by Peter Heller
The Dog Stars

Chris Haggqvist, September 12, 2012

This book has one of the most moving scenes involving a man and his dog yet put to paper. Besides that, it is a genuine and emotional account of one man's life after he has lost everything he loved and knew, and his attempt to forge on with life in spite of such loss. Absolutely beautiful and heart rending.

The Slynx (New York Review Books Classics) by Tatyana Tolstaya
The Slynx (New York Review Books Classics)

Chris Haggqvist, September 11, 2012

One of the most entertaining dystopian visions which also just happens to be a scathing attack on the soviet union (which I suppose all great sci-fi is political or social discussion), this also happens to be by the great niece of Mr Leo Tolstoy. Charming, funny, scary and filled with likable and bumbling characters, this book is one of the least renowned but best dystopian fantasies.
