it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction-and-suchlike, read-2018
Recommended for: Speculative fiction fans

This is the third of Simon Stalenhag's epic art and speculative fiction books I've backed and purchased through Kickstarter. The artwork is as strong as ever and is realistic, but infused with the author's typic off-kilter imagery.

As a unified set of possible pasts-and-futures, these are such good storytelling! I can only hope that someday, somehow, they are turned into the long-form television they deserve to be.

A little like Stranger Things, a little like The Goonies, a little like some of the best SF writing out there and al accompanied by lush, detailed paintings.

Get them all. Read them all.
