Reviews

"Silvia echoes, not the majority of SF writers with their shiny futures and ragged heroes, but that most unlikely of novelists, the late Philip K. Dick, for whom the future was only ever inhabited by the little people, by people like us, and for whom Mars represented the same sort of escape." - Lavie Tidhar, author of Central Station


"Really, this is one of the best novellas I've seen in 2017." - Locus

"Amelia is an engaging character. The specifics of her economic trap are shaped by Mexican society of the 21st century, but it's a trap to which many readers should be able to relate." - James Nicoll Reviews
