Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“By deftly extrapolating that doubt into everyone's most dreaded fears—loss of job, loss of friends, loss of children—Bear reanimates the old story of Faust, who sold his soul for unlimited knowledge and power, hinting ominously that the price of rampant technology may be dearer than we think.”  Publishers Weekly
“Bear’s masterful prose, effectively chilling and reminiscent of Koontz at his best, makes this a good pick for sf and horror fans.” Booklist
