  • “The best science fiction writer out there.”

    - Rocky Mountain News
  • “Sawyer forces his readers to think while holding their attention with ingenious premises and superlative craftsmanship.”

    - Booklist
  • “Sawyer has a way of taking familiar ideas, looking at them from new angles and in greater depth than almost anybody before him, and tying them together to create extraordinarily fresh and thought-provoking stories.”

    - Analog
  • “A great story…[Heald] reads with energy and verve, great characterization and accents as needed.”

  • “A sense of wonder that hasn’t prevailed in American SF since the days of Heinlein.”

    - Books in Canada
  • “Identity Theft is on the Hugo ballot, and it is easy to see why…The conclusion is non-stop action—literally slam-bang. Highly recommended.”

    " I always enjoy Sawyer's work, but I think I prefer his longer efforts. (So does he, according to several of the story intros.) "

    " I'd like to rate this higher but I was generally more interested in the settings than the stories. There are a couple of excellent stories in here but this is definitely a collection for fans of Sawyer and not fans of short fiction. "
