"A meticulously realised otherworld...ambitious and scrupulously crafted" (SFX)
"A world of evocative magic, brutal warfare and poetry unlike anything I'd read before...the publication of a second novel is always a tense time - was the author a one hit wonder? Fortunately for us, Deadhouse Gates triumphantly proves that this is not the case for Steve Erikson" (Ottakar's Outland website)
"If you're looking for a low calorie dish of light fantasy, this ain't it. If you're looking for a nine-course riot of taste and texture, exotically spiced to make your eyes water, your heart pump faster and your brain do cartwheels inside your cranium, I know a great little Thai place. Or, if you want something analogous to that in your reading, stop at the 'Es' and pick up the latest from Steven Erikson...I can safely say that Deadhouse Gates is one of the best fantasy novels of 2000" (Neil Walsh SF Site)
"Erikson afflicts me with awe...his work does something that only the rarest of books can manage: it alters the reader's perceptions of reality" (Stephen R Donaldson)
