    Great Libertarian Sci-Fi!!!

    I'm generally an F.Paul Wilson fan, but must say that Enemy of the State, Wheels Within Wheels and Healer are some of the best socio/political sci-fi ever.

    Couldn't Put It Down

    I didn't know what to expect when I read this first novel of Wilson's but I was not disappointed. The concept is completely fascinating and the characterization is very powerful. Anyone can fall in love with Dalt and Pard, you don't have to be a Science Fiction Fan.
