Reviews

"An engrossing picaresque quest, a love story, and a moving character study . . . [Karen] Lord is on a par with Ursula K. Le Guin."--The Guardian

"[A] fascinating and thoughtful science fiction novel that examines] adaptation, social change, and human relationships. I've not read anything quite like it, which makes it that rare beast: a true original."--Kate Elliott, author of the Crown of Stars series and The Spiritwalker Trilogy

"Reads like smooth jazz comfort food, deceptively familiar and easy going down, but subtly subversive."--Nalo Hopkinson, Los Angeles Review of Books

"If you want to see science fiction doing something new and fascinating . . . then you shouldn't sleep on The Best of All Possible Worlds."--io9

"Rewarding science fiction for emotional grown-ups."--Mysterious Galaxy

"[A] marvelously formed universe."--The A.V. Club

"A rewarding, touching and often funny exploration of the forms and functions of human culture."--SFX

"The Best of All Possible Worlds . . . poses an interesting question: What parts of you do you fight to preserve when everything you know suddenly changes?"--Associated Press
