REVIEWS
“One of the most interesting and accomplished science fiction writers of this latter-day era, indeed maybe the most interesting and accomplished, and certainly the most culturally and musically sophisticated, the Frank Herbert, William Gibson, or arguably even Thomas Pynchon of the early 21st century.” – Asimov’s

“I will read anything that man writes — he is the most underappreciated genius working in the field today.” – Cory Doctorow

“McDonald’s power as a storyteller lies in his stylistic versatility and intensity of language as well as in his capacity to create vivid and memorable characters.” – Library Journal
