「凡德米爾充滿創造力的反烏托邦故事《Borne》的一段情感豐富卻黑暗的延伸故事」─柯克斯評論

奇異鳥(Strange Bird)是個奇怪的複合生物,部份是鳥、部份是人、還有一些其他生物的特徵,她被創造出的實驗室受到圍攻,逃出實驗室後她穿過隧道,躲過子彈,變換自己的顏色和形狀來躲過追捕。

雖然成功逃過一劫,但外面的世界有許多其他的野生動物,因奇異鳥的奇怪外形而不接受她是野生世界的一份子,外面的天空中也充滿了各式各樣的科技產物,衛星和無人機都在天空中翱翔。

奇異鳥飛得越遠,就越感覺到自己落入某個奇怪的區域,創造這個區域的,是一個沒落的生物科技公司,科學家透過這個公司創造了各式各樣奇怪的生物,有一群連結網路的狐狸、掠奪成性的熊,奇異鳥在這些生物身上看到了自己的影子……

暢銷科幻小說家傑夫‧凡德米爾為暢銷作品《Borne》延伸創造出這本小說,讓《Borne》之中的世界更加完整。

The Strange Bird―from New York Times bestselling novelist Jeff VanderMeer―expands and weaves deeply into the world of his “thorough marvel”* of a novel, Borne.

The Strange Bird is a new kind of creature, built in a laboratory―she is part bird, part human, part many other things. But now the lab in which she was created is under siege and the scientists have turned on their animal creations. Flying through tunnels, dodging bullets, and changing her colors and patterning to avoid capture, the Strange Bird manages to escape.

But she cannot just soar in peace above the earth. The sky itself is full of wildlife that rejects her as one of their own, and also full of technology―satellites and drones and other detritus of the human civilization below that has all but destroyed itself. And the farther she flies, the deeper she finds herself in the orbit of the Company, a collapsed biotech firm that has populated the world with experiments both failed and successful that have outlived the corporation itself: a pack of networked foxes, a giant predatory bear. But of the many creatures she encounters with whom she bears some kind of kinship, it is the humans―all of them now simply scrambling to survive―who are the most insidious, who still see her as simply something to possess, to capture, to trade, to exploit. Never to understand, never to welcome home.

With The Strange Bird, Jeff VanderMeer has done more than add another layer, a new chapter, to his celebrated novel Borne. He has created a whole new perspective on the world inhabited by Rachel and Wick, the Magician, Mord, and Borne―a view from above, of course, but also a view from deep inside the mind of a new kind of creature who will fight and suffer and live for the tenuous future of this world.
