Jeff VanderMeer’s NYT bestselling trilogy, Southern Reach has been translated into over 30 languages and made Entertainment Weekly’s top 10 list. The first novel, Annihilation, won the Nebula Award and Shirley Jackson Award, was shortlisted for a half dozen more, and has been made into a movie to be released by Paramount Pictures in 2018. His latest novel, Borne, is the first release from Farrar, Straus and Giroux’s new MCD imprint. The novel has also been optioned by Paramount and it continues to explore themes related to the environment, animals, and our future. The New Yorker has called Jeff “the weird Thoreau” and he frequently speaks about issues related to climate change and storytelling, including at DePaul, MIT, and Vanderbilt. His nonfiction appears in the New York Times, the Atlantic, the Los Angeles Times, and many more. With his wife, Ann VanderMeer, he has edited several fiction anthologies, including The Big Book of Science Fiction. He lives in Tallahassee, Florida.
