Editorial Reviews

Review

“If worldbuilding gives you an S-class migraine, never fear. There's one book that every speculative fiction writer should read to learn about proper worldbuilding: Wonderbook by Jeff VanderMeer. This handy how-to guide deserves a spot on your writer's bookshelf…”
(Bustle)

“Aspiring writers of "imaginative fiction" — whether science fiction, fantasy or other kinds — are in for a treat: a new update to the fiction-writing guide "Wonderbook," by Jeff VanderMeer... it's gorgeous to page through and substantial enough to last new (or medium) writers a good long time.”
(SPACE.com)

“In the gorgeously illustrated Wonderbook, Vandermeer generously gives away some of his tricks."
(Refinery29)

“VanderMeer ambitiously sets out to help readers get creative, and he does it with a rule-breaking book full of illustrations.”
(Portalist) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

Review

"Wonderbook is one of the best books about writing I’ve ever read or experienced.” 
 
(Nnedi Okorafor) --This text refers to the paperback edition.
