Finished The Handmaid's Tale? Here's our list of the best books to read next.
Picador are thrilled to have acquired the next book from the award-winning author of Station Eleven, Emily St. John Mandel.
Our pick of the best dystopian books ever written, from classic authors like George Orwell, Margaret Atwood and Aldous Huxley.
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?

@CricketDrew Absolutely not. :)
@RachelFersh @thebestjasmine @AAKnopf Like two years probably. I still have to finish writing it.
@sunoxen @thebookseller "The Hotel With the Dramatic Glass Curtain Wall" didn't have quite the same ring.
I just read Station Eleven and it’s my favorite book of all time. I think I’m gonna be getting the “a fragment for my friend” poem tattooed with my bestfriend and I wish so badly that the graphic novel was real. I’m hoping to be a director when I get older and if possible I’d love to adapt your book... I’m sixteen rn so it’ll probably be a bit tho. Thank you so so much for this amazing book! (Ps it inspired me to start making my own book that’s described a bit on my other blog, letters-book) - yesterday
Thank you for this. I wish the comic books were real too—I started working on the script for a comic book a few years ago, but got distracted by my new novel; I don’t know when I’ll get to it, but I’d love to make the comic book happen someday. In the meantime, I really appreciate the kind words about my work.
Please come to Vancouver. Pretty please. With sugar on top. Unless you're cutting sugar out of your diet. In which case substitute your favourite "please" topping. Thank you. Love, The Internet. - yesterday
Thank you for this lovely message! I come to BC at least twice a year to see my family, but haven’t done an event in Vancouver in years, just because it’s been a while since I had a new book to promote. The next book comes out in 2019, so maybe then? Hopefully then.
