Makes more sense if you have some familiarity with Poe's "Pym". Good, fun read with some nice drama although it did get slow at times when the author spent too much time on describing a setting...just like Poe did in Pym.

Story of a very pale black man, who can pass as white, investigating lynchings of black people in the South. It's readable enough, but didn't quite work for me. I felt like, as it stood, it wouldn't have been greenlit in any other medium (perhaps radio play), and just could have used a bit more polish on the script. As it was, I found it a bit annoying.

In the film business, Mat Johnson’s Invisible Things would be called a story with a “high concept.” The first expedition to Jupiter discovers a city on Europa protected by a force field. The city, called New Roanoke, is inhabited by the victims of alien abduction and their descendants. They worship their unseen alien abductors and have developed strong cultural taboos around them. When a rescue ship finally arrives, it finds that not all of the original crew want to go home and that even the word home is taboo in New Roanoke. New Roanoke is not Tralfamadore, but Invisible Things is a satire that owes a lot to the satire of Kurt Vonnegut, Samuel Delany, and Philip K. Dick. Societies on Europa and Earth are deeply divided and exhibit a pathological unwillingness to face facts. Sound familiar? Johnson writes well and creates characters who think about the world and their place in it.… (mais)

Enticing mystery with well-paced tension. And great B&W line work.
