About the Author

"Phantasmagoric scenes of the descendants of black miners wrapping themselves in the skins of hunted whites and of AI-operated bulldozers breaking through the dome walls surrounding iridescent chronogates nicely illustrate Coovadia's twisty plot and ingenious resolution."--Nisi Shawl, author of Everfair

"Coovadia's latest may require some rereading to fully understand what happened, but it will be worth it for the twists and turns as the plot winds to its conclusion."
--Booklist

"Imraan Coovadia's A Spy in Time tosses us in a blender of space and time, through the travels and trials of Enver Eleven, a philosopher of a secret agent, tasked with saving humanity. Gripping and inventive." ―Ayesha Harruna Attah, author of The Hundred Wells of Salaga

"Riveting and inventive, Coovadia delivers the goods in a rollicking tale across time and perception."
―Gary Phillips, editor of The Obama Inheritance

"A solid, well-told science-fiction story that, like the best examples of the genre, offers imaginative and intelligent contemplation of where we might end up, while also providing a space for the contemplation of where we are now and how we got here."
--The Sunday Times

"Quite a good story, too--not going to space-operatic lengths but rather focusing only on the essential. Coovadia is a talented writer, and the story flows--even with it's wild jumps (in time)--smoothly and engagingly."
--Complete Review

"Coovadia's style is crisp and clean, his characters intriguing and his ideas edgy. He obviously enjoys mystifying his readers, shaking them up and ensuring they sink into the quick-sands of his creation."
--Jennifer de Klerk, Artslink.co.za
