Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Deprivers is the ultimate paranoia thriller—emphasis on the word thriller…X-Files fans take note…This book is going to blow you away!” Rockne S. O’Bannon, creator of Alien Nation and Farscape
“A book that gets under your skin and on your nerves. The science is impressive; the fiction is haunting. It has a lot on its mind; and it will touch you.” Mark Frost, cocreator of Twin Peaks
“Altman has crafted a SF thriller that also contains incisive probings of such timely topics as how the world reacts to victims of transmissible diseases, how fear leads to regimentation and segregation, and how reason and knowledge can fight against fear and ignorance.” Library Journal
“Christopher Lane adopts a low-key, somber tone, spicing his performance with skillful renditions of several regional and foreign accents. He shows equal mastery of Lakota, Brooklyn, and various Southern tongues in the US, and Russian, Dutch, and French accents abroad.” AudioFile
