Windup Girl

The winner of an extraordinary five of 2010’s major international SF awards, and named by Time Magazine as one of the top ten novels of 2009, Orbit are extremely excited to be publishing the UK edition of The Windup Girl.  Both a heart-stopping dystopian thriller and a razor-sharp vision of our near future, The Windup Girl is Paolo Baciagalupi’s debut novel and has garnered him incredible critical acclaim and comparisons to William Gibson.

The Windup Girl embodies what SF does best of all: it remakes reality in compelling, absorbing and thought-provoking ways, and it lives on vividly in the mind.’
- Adam Roberts, The Guardian main review section, Sat 18th Dec 2010

‘Pitch-perfect writing… It’s science fiction as warnings of the future, as social commentary, and as just  bloody good storytelling – SF at its very best.’
- SFX, 12th Jan 2011 (online now)

‘Bacigalupi is a worthy successor to William Gibson: this is cyberpunk without computers’
- Time Magazine

‘Clearly one of the finest science fiction novels of the year’
- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
