"A tough, authentic-feeling story that starts out fast and accelerates from there."

--Jack Campbell, author of Ascendant
"A fast-paced tale of military investigation that reads like a blend of Jerry Pournelle and NCIS. Michael Mammay brings an exciting and authentic voice of experience to military science fiction."

--Peter McLean, author of Priest of Bones
"Not just for military SF fans--although military SF fans will love it--Planetside is an amazing debut novel, and I'm looking forward to what Mammay writes next."--Tanya Huff, author of the Confederation and Peacekeeper series
"In Planetside Mammay mixes a brevity of prose with feeling of authenticity that would be remarkable in many experienced authors, let alone in a debut novel. Definitely the best military sci-fi debut I've come across in a while."--Gavin Smith, author of Bastard Legion and Age of Scorpio
"PLANETSIDE is a smart and fast-paced blend of mystery and boots-in-the-dirt military SF that reads like a high-speed collision between Courage Under Fire and Heart of Darkness."--Marko Kloos, bestselling author of the Frontline series
"The book was an enjoyable read and would likely sit well with any fan of military SF looking for an action-thriller to browse while lying in the sun at the beach."--Chris Kluwe for Lightspeed Magazine
"This was a brisk, entertaining novel. [...] I was reminded a bit of some of John Scalzi's Old Man's War novels."--SFFWorld
"If Cold Welcome and Old Man's War had a love child you might get something like PLANETSIDE. And it would be, and is, pretty damn awesome. I would say it's awesome for a debut novel, but that isn't nearly praise enough. It's just plain awesome."--Reading Reality
"Mammay capably writes Butler's gritty, old-school soldier's voice, and the story delivers enough intrigue and action for fans of military SF."--Publishers Weekly
"If you like military SF you'll love this or if you like SF mysteries or probably just SF in general. It's a highly impressive first novel that left a real impact."--SFCrowsnest
"Planetside, the debut novel by Michael Mammay, is an easy book to love. [...] a page-turner and an extremely satisfying read."--Washington Independent Review of Books
