Editorial Reviews

Jonathan Letham
"Norman Spinrad, one of the sacred heroes of my coming-of-age as a writer, has never quit redefining his role as dissident and sage, inviting the bullies of the present moment outside for a throwdown, and somehow also conjuring possible futures despite all the odds against those -- he's that most miraculous of creatures, a Utopianist's Dystopianist."
anonymous anonymous
"Spinrad is without a doubt one of the best contemporary American novelists...Endowed with an acuity as terrifying as it is pertinent."
