About the Author
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review "Feffer's book is a wild ride through a bleak future, casting a harsh, thought-provoking light on that future's modern-day roots."
--Foreword Reviews "Just as it's especially enjoyable to read science fiction written by real scientists, Feffer offers readers a uniquely well-researched and historically robust argument for why the world turns out the way that it does, which makes it all the more relevant--and frightening. "
--Washington City Paper "Readers who enjoy dystopian stories that hold more than a light look at political structures and their downfall will more than appreciate the in-depth approach John Feffer takes in his novel."
--Midwest Book Review "Splinterlands is a short and powerful dystopian novel, framed as an all-too-credible account of what might happen in our lifetimes."
--Climate and Capitalism "John Feffer is our 21st-century Jack London, and, like the latter's Iron Heel, Splinterlands is a vivid, suspenseful warning about the ultimate incompatibility between capitalism and human survival."
--Mike Davis "Feffer's book, in short, is provocative in the best sense....The dystopic alternative, illustrated so powerfully in Feffer's Splinterlands, provides us with powerful motivation to shape a better, less splintered, future."
--W. J. Astore "Splinterlands paints a startling portrait of a post-apocalyptic tomorrow that is fast becoming a reality today. Fast-paced, yet strangely haunting, Feffer's latest novel looks back from 2050 on the disintegration of world order told through the story of one broken family-- and offers a disturbing vision of what might await us all if we don't act quickly."
--Barbara Ehrenreich, author of Nickle and Dimed and Living with a Wild God, and founder of the Economic Hardship Reporting Project "A chilling portrayal of where the politics of division could take us. Now I only hope he writes the sequel to tell us how to avoid it!"
--Naomi Oreskes, co-author of The Collapse of Western Civilization
"Splinterlands offers the reader a bleak prospect. But it's one which should also inspire a resounding cry of defiance for personal and collective revolution. It does not have to be this way." -Counterfire
