Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“His quick jabs to the funny bone and the intellect often are more powerful than many a lesser artist’s attempt at a knockout punch.” San Diego Union-Tribune
“Bisson’s prose is a wonder of seemingly effortless control and precision; he is one of science fiction’s most promising short-story practitioners.” Publishers Weekly
“In this darkly comedic audio collection of futuristic stories, a dynamic trio of narrators brings diverse skills. The outlandish tales are written in an unnervingly realistic fashion, and the narrators provide an enticing combination of wit, verisimilitude, and empathy. Stefan Rudnicki’s somber rolling bass nicely offsets Kristoffer Tabori’s raspy charm, which works to great effect in their collaboration on ‘They’re Made Out of Meat.’ Janis Ian’s robust tones and subtle delivery make her an excellent match for sinister and earnest characters alike, and she particularly shines in ‘Press Ann,’ especially as the sentient ATM. Alternating narrators from story to story helps to separate worlds, while frank tones and attention to detail keep listeners anchored to the bizarre and disturbing events.” AudioFile
“These nineteen stories showcase the varied talents of a skilled and as yet unjaded writer.” Library Journal
“Brilliantly original…Every story showcases Bisson’s keen intelligence and distinctive gift for deliciously wry prose…Highly recommendable.” Booklist
“Bisson’s distinctive style and priceless imagination lift his work to an altogether more exalted plane.” Kirkus Reviews
