This man's going to be a major writer ( Iain M. Banks)
Plenty of clever surprises... a compelling read ( STARBURST)
MacLeod's ideas are always interesting and his descriptive prose is elegant, deceptively simple and extremely vivid ( SFX)
MacLeod's offbeat imagination and witty narrative make this a rewarding read ( NEW SCIENTIST)
