Reviews

"Simon Jimenez's touching, bold, surprising, gorgeous debut novel...is not only the best debut novel I've read in ages, but simply one of the best SF novels in recent memory."--Locus

"If you enjoy science fiction with heart, if you love stories about stories, about people and the future and the things we do to keep making a future for each other, then read The Vanished Birds. You're not going to want to miss this one, I promise."--Tor.com "The Vanished Birds is at its best when it's most intimate, spinning a story filled with romance, much of it queer, along with platonic relationships that demonstrate the power of found families. An impressively ambitious debut novel."--AV Club

"The future world-building is rich and smart, the prose assured, and the story both intensely personal and a blistering commentary on capitalism and colonialism. . . . Highly recommended."--Kate Elliott, author of Black Wolves "Reminiscent of Justin Cronin's The Passage, yet the journey itself evokes Bryce Courtenay's The Power of One, creating crossover appeal for readers who enjoy a bit of emotional attachment with their time travel . . .The story takes on a tone and depth that recalls an N.K. Jemisin novel."--Library Journal "This powerful, suspenseful story asks us to consider what we'd sacrifice for progress--or for the ones we love."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review) "The Vanished Birds strikes a breathless balance between the conceptually dazzling and the emotionally resonant, and it's in that balance that a bright new voice in genre fiction is born. Simon Jimenez has announced himself as a graceful, spellbinding storyteller."--BookPage
