Finished The Handmaid's Tale? Here's our list of the best books to read next.
Our pick of the best dystopian books ever written, from classic authors like George Orwell, Margaret Atwood and Aldous Huxley.
Picador are thrilled to have acquired the next book from the award-winning author of Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel.
The idea of a cult can be as gripping as being caught in the throes of one. So if you're vulnerable to persuasive plots and mind-altering outcomes, then read on for a selection of books about cults that have drawn us in and changed the way we think.
If you have read or are planning to read Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel with your book club (which we would highly recommend), take these questions along to get your discussion started.
We all know a beautiful book cover when we see one – it can pull you as if by magic from one side of the bookshop to the other with its shiny gold foil or its stroke-me surface. But magic it is not: Charlie Mainprize in Picador’s production team took us through some example...
We all fell in love with Station Eleven when it first came in on submission to Picador, and we couldn't be more excited that it has won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for science fiction.
In Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven, a bleak post-apocalyptic world is transformed into something beautiful by following a travelling Shakespearean theatre company as they pass through ruined town to town. She explores art, celebrity, fame and leaves the reader with a nostalgia f...
Not only do we have a brand new cover for the paperback of Station Eleven, out in January 2015, we also have beautiful matching covers for her three other novels, which will be published for the first time in the UK next year.
Inspired by Emily St John Mandel's Museum of Civilisation from her novel Station Eleven, Harry from Goldsboro books takes us through what items their customers would save in an apocalypse.
Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel's beautiful, dark novel set in the days and years after the collapse of civilisation, has a cover to die for. The humble computer screen doesn't do justice to the fluorescent pink of Pantone 806 C which makes up the lettering of the title, so you'...
On the eve of Shakespeare's 450th birthday, people around the world are preparing to celebrate the Bard and his plays. But what is it about his work that means we still celebrate not only his plays, but also his birthday? Emily St. John Mandel’s novel, Station Eleven, features a tr...
The nominations for sci-fi literary prizes are looking more like the Man Booker each year. What's going on?

André Kertész had an apartment overlooking Washington Square in New York City—he took photos of the park for nearly a quarter century. #ICPCollections http://bit.ly/2AUpdTS📷 Washington Square, Winter, 1954

A long, unusually photogenic day: I left Chicago before sunrise and when I got to Los Angeles I took a train in lieu of a connecting flight to Santa Barbara, because I will go to great lengths to avoid flying United and also because train travel is obviously superior in every respect. I’ve never lived in California, but my father’s family was in and around Ventura County for four generations and I love coming back here so much. The last picture is the ocean from the window of the Amtrak Pacific Surfliner, near Ventura, with a dog on the beach.
