"An intense and engaging satire of contemporary American life that reads like a Richard Morgan version of The Hunger Games, telling the story of indentured young trainees being groomed for violent tournament spectacle--and exploring the compromises we all make to survive in the arena of 'real life.'" -- Christopher Brown, Campbell and World Fantasy Award-nominated author of Tropic of Kansas and Rule of Capture

"Engstrom's promising debut offers a stark, dystopian vision." -- Publishers Weekly

"A relentless commentary on the human cost of debt culture, Corporate Gunslinger is the kind of honest, page-turning dystopia we need now more than ever." -- Darin Bradley, author of Noise

"Corporate Gunslinger takes all the niggling fears of being young and in debt in capitalist America and turns them into a brilliant, bloody nightmare of a science fictional thriller." -- Rachael K. Jones, World Fantasy Award Nominee

"This one is a brilliant, Twilight Zone-style speculation about a future ruled by corporate greed. It's brutal and violent, and it's smart and deep, too." -- RevolutionSF

"A tense, fast-paced futuristic thriller that was almost impossible to put down." -- Books, Bones, & Buffy

"Doug Engstrom has written a book about a world which enthralled, characters that spoke to me and a plot that gave me all the feels." -- The Engrossed Reader
