On Sunday Jeff VanderMeer had a review column in the New York Times (somewhat weirdly called “Science Fiction Chronicle”). Headlining the column was Lauren Beukes’ all-conquering Zoo City, but next up was a much less famous book: Mechanique by Genevieve Valentine.
Those of you who read Clarkesworld will already be familiar with Genevieve’s work — indeed she has a story in the current issue. For those who don’t, hopefully Jeff’s words of praise will be sufficient. I’m part way through the book myself and am enjoying it a lot this far.
Why am I telling you all this? Because ebook editions of Mechanique are on sale in my store.
