Reviews of this Book

‘(On Cate Gardner) A rising purveyor of high literary strangeness.’ —Publishers Weekly

‘(On Simon Bestwick) Simon Bestwick writes with great imaginative flair and an excellent grasp of colour and narrative pace.’ —The Daily Telegraph

‘(On Lavie Tidhar) Bears comparison with the best of Philip K Dick’s paranoid, alternate-history fantasies. It’s beautifully written and undeniably powerful.’ —The Financial Times
