Annihilation (Southern Reach, #1)

by: Jeff VanderMeer

Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (2014)


Staff Pick by comrade: FG

This little gem is the first book in a 3 part series of investigations into the infamous "Area X." Humorous, intelligent, and unsettling. This book reads as a poetic homage to H.P. Lovecraft.
