From the PublisherPraise for Kage Baker:
"Kage Baker is the greatest natural storyteller to enter the field since Poul Anderson."
“Baker's Company novels are a monumental achievement of imagination and whimsy.”
"Anything Kage Baker publishes I will immediately rush out and read! I am never disappointed. The woman is a marvel. She can take on any voice, in any time, and make it sing high and low."
— Ellen Kushner
“Baker is a writer worth following into any fictional territory.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle
“[Baker’s] a fine prose stylist with a skeptical intelligence and a black sense of humor.”
—The Los Angeles Times Book Review
“One of the most consistently entertaining series . . . . The novels read like literary pastiches—echoes of Heinlein and Robert Louis Stevenson fill this one—and the narrative pace matches that of most thrillers.”
—Amazing Stories on The Life of the World to Come
“The Empress of Mars reminds me . . . of Robinson's Antarctica, both describe communities of smart, highly-trained, and occasionally insane people in a hostile environment cut off from the normal world. . . . Sly humor and vivid, memorable characters.”
“[Written with] with flair and enviable skill. . . . The Company novels have never received the accolades they deserve. Here's hoping that . . . more readers will discover Baker's astonishing saga, assured that their time and effort will be amply rewarded.”
—The San Francisco Chronicle on The Sons of Heaven
