RRP  $29.99 $27.95

A visceral, fearlessly imagined future, rich with alarmingly real detail; 'Blackfish City is a place you might never want to live in - but as a reader, you won't want to leave' Adam Sternbergh, author of THE BLINDS

'An incisive and beautifully written story of love, revenge and the power (and failure) of family in a scarily plausible future. Blackfish City simmers with menace and heartache, suspense and wonder' Ann Leckie, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Clarke Awards

After the climate wars, a floating city was constructed in the Arctic Circle. Once a remarkable feat of mechanical and social engineering, it has started to crumble under the weight of its own decay - crime and corruption have set in, a terrible new disease is coursing untreated through the population, and the contradictions of incredible wealth alongside deepest poverty are spawning unrest.

Into this turmoil comes a strange new visitor - a woman accompanied by an orca and a chained polar bear. She disappears into the crowds looking for someone she lost thirty years ago, followed by whispers of a vanished people who could bond with animals. Her arrival draws together four people and sparks a chain of events that will lead to unprecedented acts of resistance.

Blackfish City is a mesmerising novel from a stunning new voice in science fiction.
