Reviews

"Literary hybrids of Jane Austen novels and zombie stories? That's so last year. Quirk Books, which released the best-selling novels Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, has seen the future of the mashup novel, and it is Leo Tolstoy and robots."--New York Times

"Anna's nightmare, one of the most famous passages in Anna Karenina, clearly anticipates the 'steampunk-inspired' atmosphere of Android Karenina... Tolstoy didn't know about steampunk or cyborgs, but he did know about the nightmarishness of steam power, unruly machines, and the creepy half-human status of the Russian peasant classes."--Elif Batuman, author of The Possessed, via The New Yorker

"Creepy, thrilling, and highly enjoyable!"--Library Journal

"Whenever a truly pulpy trend reaches its apotheosis like this, I can't help but wonder if we'll get a new classic out of it."--io9

"Android Karenina lives up to its promise to make Tolstoy 'awesomer.'"--The Onion AV Club

"Winters, a playwright, librettist, and author of Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters, connects all of Tolstoy's dots in the cleverly bizarre world he has created and he transforms a Russian novel into a reasonably demented work of science fiction."--Galley Cat

"With Android, Winters has given Tolstoy's beautiful Russian epic a steampunk edge, filling the book with robots, space travel and yes, even a few aliens."--Techland
