Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In this moving debut from Hugo-winner McIntosh, the prosperous world of 2023 ends not with a bang but with a crackle, the sound of genetically engineered bamboo growing overnight and destroying roads and buildings. Naïve college graduate Jasper struggles to trade charged batteries for food as his "tribe" wanders the Georgia countryside, dodging local cops and designer diseases. Settling in Savannah, they try to find some stability in a crumbling city beset by anarchist gangs and the "scientist-rebels" who release tailored organisms to hasten societal collapse. In the end, each member of the tribe must decide what to give up in order to survive. The novel, expanded from a short story, shows some unevenness in tone, but McIntosh strongly delineates his characters and makes Jasper's struggles very affecting. Though it may be soft, this apocalypse has plenty of sharp edges. (Apr.)

Review

Bottom line: If Soft Apocalypse isn't nominated for a Hugo or Nebula Award, I will eat the entire book page by page...
--Paul Goat Allen

(McIntosh) has written a first novel that's compelling, credible, and relentless, who's best and most disturbing moments will stay with the reader for a long time. --Locus

McIntosh's first novel is a grim glimpse into a future that is not all that improbable...This is the sort of thoughtful sociological SF we see too seldom today--the kind of work Pohl and Kornbluth did in the 1950s. Well worth a read.
     -Peter Heck, Asimov's
