All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders

Patricia is a witch who can communicate with birds.  Laurence is a mad scientist and inventor of the two-second time machine.  As teenagers they gravitate towards one another, sharing in the horrors of growing up weird.

When they meet again as adults, Laurence is an engineering genius trying to save the world and live up to his reputation in near-future San Francisco.  Meanwhile, Patricia is a graduate of Eltisley Maze, the hidden academy for the magically gifted, working hard to prove herself to her fellow magicians and secretly repair the earth’s ever growing ailments.

As they attempt to save our future, Laurence and Patricia’s shared past pulls them back together.  And though they come from different worlds, when they collide, the witch and the scientist will discover that maybe they understand each other better than anyone.

From the editor-in-chief of, a stunning novel about the end of the world
– and the beginning of our future.

Peer & Press Reviews

Warm, funny, sardonic – the best debut novel I’ve read in ages.

Charles Stross, author of the Laundry Files series

A friendship between two adolescent misfits is the catalyst for an apocalyptic reckoning in Anders’s clever and wonderfully weird novel…  Fans of genre fiction will be delighted by Patricia and Laurence’s story, and Anders’ smart, matter-of-fact prose will appeal to a mainstream audience as well.

Publishers Weekly

Everything you could ask for in a debut novel a fresh look at science fiction’s most cherished memes, ruthlessly shredded and lovingly reassembled.

Cory Doctorow, author of Homeland

A clever addition to the old science versus magic debate… a weird and charming read.
