Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

A masterful, onion-layered tale of pariahdom, treachery, and genocide that ultimately reveals the true deathlessness of hope and love. Charles E. Gannon, author of Fire With Fire
Combines excellent characters and a fascinating world. What really makes it work is how he deftly weaves together startling SFnal ideas with character-based intrigue. You'll really care for these characters, even as you find them believably alien. I found it a compulsive page-turner and immensely enjoyable. Karl Schroeder, author of Lockstep
Powerful. Grand in scope, yet deeply intimate. Schoen gives anthropomorphism some serious spirituality. It got inside my head in the way that only an exciting new idea can. Howard Tayler, Hugo Award-winning creator of Schlock Mercenary
A heartfelt and wonderfully weird book: a space opera about kindness and memory. Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence
A captivating, heartwarming story in a unique and fantastic world... as rich and mysterious as Dune. James L. Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea
Weird, wise, and worldly, Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard is a triumph. Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Red Planet Blues
The second you encounter the arboreal uplifted elephants who speak with the dead, you know you're reading a work of singular imaginative power. It's a delight from beginning to end. Walter Jon Williams, Nebula Award-winning author of the Metropolitan series
