WIRED Book of the Month: Dead Astronauts by Jeff VanderMeer

The author of the Southern Reach Trilogy and Borne, he’s worth reading because his visions of humans and the world they inhabit are less Hopper than Dali, or really, Hiernomymous Bosch, who in Dead Astronauts lends his name to a leviathan charged with gobbling up failed biological experiments cast out of laboratories.Fans of Vandermeer will notice bits of his older work echoing through Dead Astronauts.
