Wishlist | Alien Clay by Adrian Tchaikovsky

Wednesdays are for wishlists, and this week I'm adding Alien Clay by Adrian Tchaikovsky.

Alien Clay is a thrilling far-future adventure by acclaimed Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning author Adrian Tchaikovsky.

The planet of Kiln is where the tyrannical Mandate keeps its prison colony, and for inmates the journey there is always a one-way trip. One such prisoner is Professor Arton Daghdev, xeno-ecologist and political dissident. Soon after arrival he discovers that Kiln has a secret. Humanity is not the first intelligent life to set foot there.

In the midst a ravenous, chaotic ecosystem are the ruins of a civilization, but who were the vanished builders and where did they go? If he can survive both the harsh rule of the camp commandant and the alien horrors of the world around him, then Arton has a chance at making a discovery that might just transform not only Kiln but distant Earth as well.

I am such a fan of Adrian Tchaikovksy. I was so excited to see the cover reveal for Alien Clay. My favorite thing about alien worlds is discovering what kind of alien life resides there. I love that the book description says "alien horrors". This is a must buy for me.


  1. I haven't tackled any Tchaikovsky novel yet, but I've read some of his novellas. I loved One Day All This Will Be Yours and And Put Away Childish Things.

  2. I agree that learning about the different types of alien life forms would be interesting. I hope you love this when you read it

  3. That is such a cool cover. Definitely makes me want to check out the book.

  4. I would definitely read this! I'm a big fan of the author too.

  5. I'm loving the sound of this! I've enjoyed this author's work in the past and, hopefully, will definitely try this one out too. Thanks for sharing! :)
