Editorial Reviews

D,. A. H.
It is an awesome writing task to tell a story than spans 17,000 years without getting lost in details or leaving gaping holes in thye plotline. Resnick has written an impressive work.
Martha Bartter
Resnick has a beautiful style, his characterizations are well-handled, and his descriptions vivid. The situations his characters face are exciting and clearly presented.
Faren Miller
BIRTHRIGHT is a kind of magicked mirror, where we find our own image amid strange scenes, with alien companions. It's well worth your attention.
