Publishers Weekly gives Quantum Night a starred review

Publishers Weekly just gave my Quantum Night a starred review!

The most-coveted review in the industry, a “starred review” from PW indicates a book of exceptional merit. PW is the trade journal of the publishing industry.

Note: There are spoilers in the full review, but here are the first and last lines:

“Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author Sawyer’s latest work is a fast-moving, mind-stretching exploration of the nature of personality and consciousness; it balances esoteric speculation with action and character.”

“Sawyer (Red Planet Blues) is very good at grounding the technical speculation in personal conflict, as Marchuk’s utilitarian principles struggle with his emotional impulses and the political/media references keep the story uncomfortably close to present-day fears.”

  1. Can’t wait! Love your balance between the scientific and the human side of the stories.

  2. Love your books! I have all of them and am looking forward to Quantum Night.

    I’m currently re-reading the Neanderthal Parallax and am nearly finished Hybrids. Got a bit of a jolt though when I found Bill Cosby listed as one of the “good guys” (Chapter 37). And historians now know admit that Mahatma Gandhi sexually abused his niece.

    How things change over 10+ years. But if the series ever goes to reprint, you might want to take a new look at that list.

  3. Congratulations on getting such a coveted review!
