Review: The Genocides

User Review  - Goodreads

An end-of-the world novel, told from the perspective of human refugees who have been reduced to the level of burrowing pests on a massive, planet-wide alien farm. Similar in some ways to Brian Aldiss's Long Afternoon of Earth, but much bleaker in its outcome. Read full review

Review: The Genocides

User Review  - Goodreads

An eco-apocalyptic novel in which aliens have seeded the earth with fast-growing, colossal plants which parasitically drain the planet's water and collapse civilization. Concentric agriculture and religious metaphor illuminates Disch's depressing take on the nature of mankind. Read full review
