Editorial Reviews

Dean R. Lambe
Readers in search of a good story will be pleased with this oft-tender rendering of lovers pitted against the underside of the rock that is humanity. Well-realized thoroughly-adult characters populate this novel.
Don D'Ammassa
EROS ASCENDING is one of the best novels Resnick has done, a fine adventure story with well-conceived characters, a good deal of interpersonal politicking, and good writing throughout.

I've several Mike Resnick novels and about a year or so ago thry all broke. Every paragraph is now its own line. If more than a few words, the line disappears off the page. I want my money back.

Haven't started reading yet but found problems in the format on the NOOK color that cuts off most of the sentences regardless of font. Only buy this as a NOOK book if you own the original e-paper NOOK that displays this correctly.
