The Terraformers

The Terraformers by Annalee Newitz is an exuberantly brilliant book. With an intergenerational, diasporic tale centering on the privatization of a terraformed planet and the enslaved people who have built it over many centuries, Newitz proffers fragile hope and a better vision for humanity. While written with a childlike whimsy as we follow characters who have seemingly naive desires to always do the right thing, The Terraformers possesses undercurrents of sensuality, queer subversion, political revolution, and obsessively-researched eco-consciousness. This is the kind of book to give to a reader who claims that science fiction is “irrelevant” to the real world and “completely made up”—The Terraformers will prove them embarrassingly wrong.
