Reviews

"A dizzying composite of military space opera andsheer poetry. Every word, name and concept in Lee's unique world is imbued witha sense of wonder."--Hannu Rajaniemi
"Astriking space opera by a bright new talent."--Elizabeth Bear
"Ahigh-octane ride through an endlessly inventive world, where calendars areweapons of war and dead soldiers can assist the living. Bold, fearlesslyinnovative and just a bit brutal, this is a book that deserves to be on everyawards list."--Aliette de Bodard
"Beautiful, brutal and full of the kind of off-hand inventiveness that the best SF trades in, Ninefox Gambit is an effortlessly accomplished SF novel. Yoon Ha Lee has arrived in spectacular fashion."--Alastair Reynolds
"I love Yoon's work! Ninefox Gambit is solidly and satisfyingly full of battles and political intrigue, in a beautifully built far-future that manages to be human and alien at the same time. It should be a treat for readers already familiar with Yoon's excellent short fiction, and an extra treat for readers finding Yoon's work for the first time."--Ann Leckie
"StarshipTroopers meets Apocalypse Now - and they've put Kurtz in charge...Mind-blistering military space opera, but with a density of ideas andstrangeness that recalls the works of Hannu Rajaniemi, even Cordwainer Smith.An unmissable debut."--Stephen Baxter
"Forsixteen years Yoon Ha Lee has been the shadow general of science fiction, thecalculating tactician behind victory after victory. Now he launches his greatmanoeuvre. Origami elegant, fox-sly, defiantly and ferociously new, this book will burn your brain. Axiomatically brilliant. Heretically good."--Seth Dickinson
"Daring, original and compulsive. As if Cordwainer Smith had written a Warhammer novel."--Gareth L. Powell
A tight-woven, complicated but not convoluted, breathtakingly original space opera.--New York Times
