Ann & Jeff VanderMeer
The Time Traveler's Almanac



Book Cover

From the internationally published Hugo Award and World Fantasy Award-winning duo comes a treasury of time travel stories covering millions of years of Earth's history — from the age of the dinosaurs to strange and fascinating futures, through to the end of time itself.



Praise for THE WEIRD:

"The definitive collection of weird fiction . . . its success lies in its ability to lend coherence to a great number of stories that are so remarkably different and yet share the same theme." —Time Literary Supplement

"Studded with literary gems, it's a hefty, diligently assembled survey of a genre that manages to be at once unsettling, disorientating and bracing in its variety." —Financial Times

"Ambitious in the extreme, the Vandermeers' latest genre-blurring endeavor is one of the most far-reaching and inclusive speculative anthologies to ever see print. Alongside familiar names — from Lovecraft and Kafka to Link and Kiernan — the Vandermeers unveil a menagerie of obscure authors and impressive stories from around the world. This standard-setting compilation is a deeply affectionate and respectful history of speculative fiction's blurry edges, and its stunning diversity and excellent quality will entice a wide variety of readers — including those who think they don't like 'weird.'"
Publishers Weekly, starred review

Praise for THE THACKERY T. LAMBSHEAD CABINET OF CURIOSITIES:

"Some of the most interesting fantasist-fabulists writing today."
Los Angeles Times, Recommended Summer Reading

"The narrative scope and stellar assemblage of writers and illustrators in The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities makes this a book that will be absolutely cherished by fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk aficionados alike." — Paul Goat Allen, Barnes & Noble Book Club

"A science-fiction symphony of strangeness . . . Cabinet of Curiosities will give you a good jolt of wonder." —The Gainesville Times

"Well written with plenty of meticulous line drawings, photos, excerpts from letters and manuscripts and more, this engaging read is sure to pique the interest of young and old alike." —MonstersandCritics.com
