“The book is full of quirkiness and playful detail...but there's an overwhelming depth and poignancy to its virtuoso ending.” —NPR

From the former editor-in-chief of io9.com, a stunning Nebula Award-winning and
Hugo-shortlisted novel about the end of the worldand the beginning of our future

An ancient society of witches and a hipster technological startup go to war in order to prevent the world from tearing itself apart. To further complicate things, each of the groups’ most promising followers (Patricia, a brilliant witch and Laurence, an engineering “wunderkind”) may just be in love with each other.

As the battle between magic and science wages in San Francisco against the backdrop of international chaos, Laurence and Patricia are forced to choose sides. But their choices will determine the fate of the planet and all mankind.

In a fashion unique to Charlie Jane Anders, All the Birds in the Sky offers a humorous and, at times, heart-breaking exploration of growing up extraordinary in a world filled with cruelty, scientific ingenuity, and magic.

Captivating, Clever, Consuming

It's so unique. Which is incredibly rare. It's tragic, funny, bold and breathtakingly different. The people in it are so broken, so relatable. And as the story continues, you feel as if you're racing toward a precipice, and all you can do is brace yourself to be thrown off of it. The sheer pain of the first half pay off in the second.
