Welcome to the Science Fiction section of St. Stephens Books! Here, you can explore the fantastical worlds and futuristic landscapes of some of the most celebrated sci-fi series of our time. Today, we're shining a spotlight on three particularly remarkable trilogies: The Southern Reach Trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer, the Altered Carbon Series by Richard Morgan, and the Chronicles of St Mary's by Jodi Taylor.
First up, let's delve into the haunting and mysterious world of the Southern Reach Trilogy. All three books can be found in our Southern Reach 3 book collection. In this series, VanderMeer introduces us to a place called Area X, a stretch of land shrouded in secrecy and cut off from the rest of the world by an invisible border. As a team of scientists and explorers venture into the heart of this enigmatic terrain, they encounter strange and unsettling phenomena that challenge everything they thought they knew about the nature of reality. With lush, poetic prose and a gift for crafting unforgettable imagery, VanderMeer takes readers on a journey through the unknown that will leave them questioning their own perceptions of the world around them.
Next, let's turn our attention to the gritty and thrilling world of the Altered Carbon Series. In this cyberpunk-inspired universe, technology has advanced to the point where human consciousness can be uploaded into new bodies, called sleeves. Protagonist Takeshi Kovacs is a former soldier turned private investigator who finds himself embroiled in a web of intrigue and violence as he navigates the corrupt power structures of this society. Morgan's writing is raw and visceral, drawing readers into a world that is both fascinating and terrifying in its implications. With sharp commentary on topics such as class, power, and the nature of humanity itself, the Altered Carbon Series is a must-read for anyone who loves sci-fi with a side of gritty realism. Grab all three books in the trilogy in our Altered Carbon trilogy 3-book set.
Finally, we come to the Chronicles of St Mary's, a delightful and charming series by Jodi Taylor that blends elements of sci-fi, historical fiction, and humor. The St Mary's Institute of Historical Research is a time-traveling institution that sends its employees on missions to observe and record key moments in history. However, as anyone who has ever tried to mess with the timeline can attest, things don't always go according to plan. From the battlefields of World War I to the court of King Henry VIII, the team at St Mary's must navigate danger, chaos, and the occasional bout of irreverent humor as they strive to protect the integrity of history itself. Taylor's writing is clever and witty, with a sharp eye for historical detail and a knack for crafting lovable, quirky characters that readers can't help but root for. Why not get all ten books with our Chronicles of St Mary’s 10-book collection.
Whether you're in the mood for a haunting, otherworldly experience, a gritty and action-packed adventure, or a lighthearted romp through the annals of history, the Science Fiction section of St. Stephens Books has you covered. With these three incredible series as just a taste of what's on offer, we invite you to dive into the limitless possibilities of the sci-fi genre and discover new worlds and ideas that will capture your imagination and leave you breathless.
