Take Them to the Stars

Showing that truth is stranger than fiction, Sylvain Neuvel weaves a sci-fi thriller reminiscent of Blake Crouch and Andy Weir, blending a fast moving, darkly satirical look at 1940s rocketry with an exploration of the amorality of progress and the nature of violence. A History of What Comes Next is the first book in this propulsive series, Take Them to the Stars.

“This stellar debut novel […] masterfully blends together elements of sci-fi, political thriller and apocalyptic fiction.[…] A page-turner of the highest order.” -Kirkus Reviews (starred review) on Sleeping Giants

Sylvain Neuvel

Sylvain Neuvel has taught linguistics in India, and worked as a software engineer in Montreal. He is also a certified translator, though he wishes he were an astronaut. His girlfriend would have him believe that he has too many toys, so he writes about aliens and giant robots as a blatant excuse to build action figures (for his son, of course). His debut, Sleeping Giants, was described by NPR as “one of the most promising series kickoffs in recent memory.”
