Reviews

"A landmark of modern dystopianism."--Kirkus Reviews

"With the calm strangeness of dreams, and humor deepened by a hint of melancholy, these wonderful stories fool around on the frontiers of the imagination.--Shelley Jackson

"Life or death? Dream or reality? Antoine Volodine destroys these binaries with the force of a nuclear meltdown."--Rachel S. Cordasco, World Literature Today

"Jeffrey Zuckerman's translation excels in setting a mood of discomfort partly rooted in the text's radical semantic instability, while simultaneously lending the prose haunting cadences."--Geoff Shullenberger, Los Angeles Review of Books

"Radiant Terminus is a compelling and consistently engaging read from cover to cover and highly recommended for both community and academic library Literary Fiction collections, as well as the personal reading lists of science fiction enthusiasts."--Pault T. Vogel, The Midwest Book Review
