Description

"Charlie Jane Anders is ridiculously brilliant." --Rachel Swirsky, Locus

Praise for All the Birds in the Sky

"The very short list of novels that dare to traffic as freely in the uncanny and wondrous as in big ideas--I think of masterpieces like The Lathe of Heaven; Cloud Atlas; Little, Big--has just been extended by one."--Michael Chabon

"Genius."--Margaret Cho

"A glorious synthesis of magic and technology, joy and sorrow, romance and wisdom. Unmissable."--Lev Grossman, author of The Magicians

"As hopeful as it is hilarious...Highly recommended."--N. K. Jemisin, The New York Times Book Review

"Charlie Jane Anders has entwined strands of science and fantasy...into a luminous novel that reveals the exhilarating necessity of each."--John Hodgman, author of The Areas of My Expertise

"An instant classic....Like the work of other 21st century writers--Kelly Link and Lev Grossman come immediately to mind--All the Birds in the Sky serves as both a celebration of and corrective to the standard tropes of genre fiction." --Elizabeth Hand, Los Angeles Times

"Everything you could ask for in a debut novel--a fresh look at science fiction's most cherished memes, ruthlessly shredded and lovingly reassembled." --Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing

"Imagine that Diana Wynne Jones, Douglas Coupland and Neil Gaiman walk into a bar and through some weird fusion of magic and science have a baby. That offspring is Charlie Jane Anders' lyrical debut novel All the Birds in the Sky." --Independent

"The scenario is (almost) Harry Potter, the tone is (quite like) Kurt Vonnegut, the effect is entirely original." --The Wall Street Journal
