RaveThe Guardian (UK)... one of the most interesting explorations of the many worlds theory that I’ve read in years. It is also an unusual crime story featuring two well drawn, believable and sympathetic characters: Felicity Sharp ... Original, intelligent, unputdownable.
PositiveThe Guardian (UK)Would you get a brain implant to help you multitask? What about one for your child, to help them do better at school? This is science fiction as domestic slice of life; a gripping, believable immersion in the day after tomorrow.
RaveThe Guardian (UK)... an exhilarating journey to the outer limits of science fiction, steeped in the southern gothic tradition and grounded in the physical and social realities of being poor, powerless, black and female in America ... A furious, justified anger drives this novel, drawing on the US history of racial oppression, but it’s also joyful and wildly entertaining.
PositiveThe Guardian (UK)This quirky, compelling book is likely to gain an even wider audience for its author, without disappointing his many SF fans. The engine that drives it is speculation about the future not only of civilisation, but of all life on this planet. Metaphysical questions about our relationship to other forms of life, and our ability to change not only the world but ourselves, run throughout the book and come to the fore in an unsettling conclusion.
RaveThe Guardian (UK)... combines an intriguing, character-driven plot with great splashes of science fictional weirdness. The novel grips from the start, exploring with deceptive simplicity issues ranging from the difficulties of communicating with the people we love to colonisation on a planetary scale ... I was reminded of the authors who first got me hooked on science fiction with their combination of deep humanity, brilliant storytelling and wild imagination: writers such as Theodore Sturgeon, Kate Wilhelm and Ursula Le Guin. Skyward Inn feels like an instant classic of the genre.
