Something Big Is Coming… Revealing John Scalzi’s The Kaiju Preservation Society

John Scalzi returns with his first standalone adventure since the conclusion of his New York Times bestselling, Hugo-nominated Interdependency trilogy! We are pleased to share the cover for The Kaiju Preservation Society by John Scalzi, an adventure of epic proportions. Literally. Scalzi says:

“I love this cover, down the delightfully accurate blood smudge. And I can’t wait for you all to read The Kaiju Preservation Society when it comes out next March. It has monsters, snark and explosions (not necessarily in that order). It’s 150 meters of kaiju fun, in convenient book form. Also, sorry, Canada. For, uhhhhhh, reasons.”

The Kaiju Preservation Society will be available from Tor Books on March 22, 2022.
