James Morrow is a two-time World Fantasy Award winner and a two-time Nebula Award winner. His latest comedic extravaganza, Galápagos Regained, has received much advance praise, including a starred Library Journal review that concluded, “It’s almost a crime for a novel to be as much fun as this one is.” New York Times bestselling author Wilton Barnhardt called Morrow’s new effort “a witty and wisecracking Victorian adventure, an Indiana Jones caper with Charles Darwin lurking in the wings, as if Jules Verne was retold by Tom Stoppard,” while Nebula and Hugo-winning author Paolo Bacigalupi found Galápagos Regained to be “a riotous conflation of Candide and Around the World in 80 Days.” Learn more about Galápagos Regained and his other work at jamesmorrow.info.
