Editorial Reviews

Review

''A floating Arctic city; nano-bonded orcas and polar bears; an Earth violently reshaped by the mistakes we're making right now… I haven't been this swept away by imagination and worldbuilding since Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials. A gorgeous, queer, muscular novel.'' (Carmen Maria Machado, National Book Award-nominated author of Her Body and Other Parties)

''An ambitious, imaginative, and big-hearted dystopian ensemble. . . . Miller has crafted a thriller that unflinchingly examines the ills of urban capitalism. . . . Rendered in poetic interludes.'' (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

''A wildly inventive post-cyberpunk ride that also has real things to say about community and family. Sam Miller's drowned future is vivid and fully real, even as he throws in the weird and the fantastic. Sam Miller is a fiercely strong writer, and this book is a blast.'' --(Daryl Gregory, World Fantasy Award-winning author of Spoonbenders)

''Blackfish City is an exhilarating tour of a post-catastrophe future that's both fantastical and eerily convincing. Imagine The Yiddish Policeman's Union cross-bred with Snowcrash and you'll get an inkling of the imaginative horsepower on display here.'' (Adam Sternbergh, author of The Blinds)

''Miller gives us 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, New York Times bestselling and Hugo, Nebula, and Clarke Award-winning author of Ancillary Justice)

From the Back Cover

After the climate wars, a floating city is constructed in the Arctic Circle, a remarkable feat of mechanical and social engineering, complete with geothermal heating and sustainable energy. The city’s denizens have become accustomed to a roughshod way of living. However, the city is starting to fray along the edges—crime and corruption have set in, the contradictions of incredible wealth alongside direst poverty are spawning unrest, and a dangerous epidemic nicknamed “the breaks” is spreading, ravaging the population.

When a strange new visitor arrives—a woman riding an orca with a polar bear at her side—the city is entranced. “The orcamancer,” as she’s known, very subtly brings together four people, each living on the periphery, to stage unprecedented acts of resistance. By banding together to save their city before it crumbles under the weight of its own decay, they will learn shocking truths about themselves.

Blackfish City is a remarkably urgent—and ultimately very hopeful—novel about political corruption, organized crime, technology run amok, gender identity, the consequences of climate change, and the unifying power of human connection.
