Reviews

A Publishers Weekly SF, Fantasy, & Horror Top Ten Pick for Fall 2015--Publishers Weekly
A Locus Hardcover Bestseller, January 2016!--Locus Magazine Bestsellers "January 7th, 2016 "
"Silver on the Road feels like a story you've always known, but never read; the kind of haunting, perfect myth that draws together magic, the Old West, saints and sinners and innocents into a brilliant blend that's simultaneously startling and familiar."--- Rachel Caine, NYT bestselling author of the Weather Warden and Morganville Vampire series
Silver on the Road marks a major landmark in the burgeoning subgenre of Weird West Fantasy, and in my opinion the best novel, on all fronts, that Laura Anne Gilman has written to date. Anyone vaguely interested in her work, or in Weird Westerns, should take the coin of the Devil and ride the road with Isobel and Gabriel to find out what's in the Devil's West. Isobel's journey begins here and while the novel ends on a strong note, it is clear that she has miles to ride on the Road yet. I can't wait for the sequel.--SF Signal "October 9, 2015 "
"Reading Silver on the Road is not like falling into some new and unfamiliar world. It's more like a true American myth being found."--- NPR Books
"Silver on the Road takes an underused setting for fantasy--the American West--and uses it to explore coming of age, the limits of power and responsibility, and the importance of mingling compassion and justice. It's fresh and original and the language is both stark and lovely. The descriptions of the natural landscape of the West fit beautifully with descriptions of talking animals, travelling magicians and terrifying supernatural forces." - 4 1/2 stars--RT Book review
