Reviews

Praise for The Skinner

"An exhilarating tour through one of the most ingeniously, elaborately deadly worlds since Harry Harrison invented Deathworld." --Locus

"Dune meets Master and Commander." --Entertainment Weekly

General Praise for Neal Asher:

"Neal Asher's books are like an adrenaline shot targeted directly for the brain." --New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi

"With mind-blowing complexity, characters, and combat, Asher's work continues to combine the best of advanced cybertech and military SF." ?Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Asher is a modern master of sci-fi." --Starburst magazine

"A wide-screen special-effects extravaganza, a space opera featuring gods and monsters . . . Doc Smith and Olaf Stapledon in a blender, turned up to eleven, with the contents splattering across the ceiling." ?Russell Letson, Locus

"Asher has an amazing talent for world-building, for writing larger-than-life characters, for weaving gripping plots and for imagining exotic alien races and wonderful technologies. Huge ships! Big weapons! Space battles! Ground battles! Treason! Revenge! This is New Space Opera at its best." --Sense of Wonder

"Hardboiled, fast-paced space opera . . . Asher's books are similar to the world of Iain M. Banks' Culture universe, but the Polity is arguably a much darker and more vicious environment--and all the better for it." --The Register
