Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Wilson's abundant talents are on displaythe detail that hooks you, the efficient worldbuilding, the ideas and concepts deftly embedded throughout that light up the imagination, yet never slow down these propulsive narratives. Dark, chilling, even moving at times and consistently entertaining. This is brainy action, hard sci-fi with heart. Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe
“Smart writing and intriguing characters lend themselves to these well-crafted tales about future technology. . . . This is a boon to both Wilson’s fans and sf readers seeking high-quality short fiction. Library Journal
By page 9, I was grinning like a kid on his first carnival ride. I love everything out of Daniel Wilson’s mind—it’s fun and it’s fast—and the short story format takes it into overdrive. Thrilling, touching, funny, heartbreaking and scary as hell, there’s nowhere this rollercoaster won’t take you. Grab on to those pages and hold tight. You’re in for one hell of a ride. Sylvain Neuvel, author of Sleeping Giants
Spectacular. . . . Wilson displays an aching humanity and literary sensibility that will satisfy his fans and win him plenty of new ones. This thoughtful, affecting collection will linger in the thoughts of readers long after the last page is turned. Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Daniel H. Wilson's first short story collection delivers on all counts. . . . Wilson's work is masterfully rendered, and his fans will find Robopocalypse and The Clockwork Dynasty tie-in entries. For newcomers, there are plenty of other sometimes dark, always engaging worlds to love. Shelf Awareness
