Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times - Theodore Sturgeon
Here stands a high talent; truly amazing, original, towering talent. He is an authentic poet; his imagery is original and often startling. The book is one high-pitched modulating chord from beginning to end, blazing with color and sensations, many of the latter bloody and shocking. Sumner Kagan is born into an Earth 1,300 years hence, when our planet has moved into a beam of radiation emanating from a black hole at the hub of the galaxy. Nothing is familiar except the human heart...
Washington Post
An instant classic.
Minneapolis Tribune
RADIX is sheer pleasure to read: brimming with living characters, splendid adventures....It is an exhilarating novel.
L. A. Times
Here stands a high talent; a truly amazing, original, towering talent.

Meet the Author

I write my fiction inside a volcano. The twenty-two novels and two short story collections I’ve published were all composed in Koko Crater, a dormant cinder cone near my home on the outskirts of Honolulu, Hawai’i.
