Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Twenty-five years after its print publication, Pacific Edge finally has an audio edition, thanks to Stefan Rudnicki and Skyboat Media…No other book in my collection has the power to uplift me with hope and optimism like this one…Pacific Edge is an inspiring story about inspiring stories. It’s even more relevant now than it was a quarter century ago.” Cory Doctorow
“Through a blend of dirt-under-fingernails naturalism and lyrical magical realism, Robinson invites us to share his characters’ intensely personal, intensely loyal attachment to what they have. The result is a bittersweet utopia that may shame you into entertaining new hope for the future.” New York Times Book Review
“An outstanding achievement…Robinson’s writing ranks in the highest levels of the genre. The book generates a soaring optimism.” Publishers Weekly
