Reviews

This Is How You Lose the Time War is rich and strange, a romantic tour through all of time and the multiverse, and you shouldn't miss a moment."

-- "Martha Wells, Hugo Award-winning author"

"Poetry, disguised as genre fiction. I read several sections out loud--this is prose that wants to be more than read. It wants to be heard and tasted."

-- "Kelly Sue DeConnick, author of Bitch Planet and Captain Marvel"
