Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Having used H.G. Wells’s The Time Machine as the starting point for 2011’s The Map of Time, Palma now takes The War of the Worlds as the basis for this top-notch sequel…Fans of intelligent science fiction as well as historical thrillers will be rewarded.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Palma writes with shrewdness and glee.” Washington Post
“A cross-genre masterpiece.” Associated Press
The Map of the Sky keeps the reader guessing, checking, and thinking, all the while providing many sidelights on the literary history of sci-fi itself.” Wall Street Journal

Palma has done it!

One of the finest books I have ever listened to, the sequel to The Map of Time is funny, exciting, captivating and everything a reader can want. I was SO into this book that when I got to the end I IMMEDIATELY went to find The Map of Chaos (it's sequel), only to find it is not planned for Downpour. Argh! Thank you, Mr. Langton, for an amazing read. You all did a great job! Two thumbs up, for sure!
