One of the most interesting sci-fi-fi reads for me over the last few years was Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation. It’s the first in the “Southern Reach” trilogy, a trio of books released one every six months for a year. The story is cerebral and yet enthralling, which makes the prospect of a movie adaptation both daunting and haunting. They just released a trailer for the adaptation of the first novel. Quite the cast. And the visuals are great.
