Praise for the Internet Apocalypse Trilogy"With his sharp wit and Google-esque knowledge of the Web, Gladstone lays bare the ways viral communication has become the infrastructure of our economic and cultural identity. . . . At its core, Notes from the Internet Apocalypse is a love story [that] will break your heart." --The Washington Post "[A] belly-laugh account of what would happen . . . if someone stole the Internet, [that] touches on some of the fundamental issues of our times." --The Toronto Star on Notes from the Internet Apocalypse "A profane, very funny comedy [with] a surprising amount of pathological drama . . . that shows there's a lot of brains behind all those dirty jokes. An acid cultural satire that skewers what we would miss most about the online world." --Kirkus Reviews on Notes from the Internet Apocalypse "An oddly heartfelt journey through the wasteland of a techno-collapse. Gladstone takes a far-fetched story idea and breathes startling life into it. He gambles here, but he wins."
--Patton Oswalt on Notes from the Internet Apocalypse "This is satire in its purest form: an exaggerated, filthy, and ridiculous world---which happens to be exactly the world we live in. Gladstone has conceived, and successfully executed, a clever thought experiment that illustrates just how crazy the Internet has made all of us. Witty, profane, and entertaining." --Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe "Required reading for fans of its predecessor. And until the final volume, all the disconnected Net junkies out there will be craving a fix." --Booklist on Agents of the Internet Apocalypse "This is a fun read with undeniable depth. Even readers that didn't read the first book. . . can easily dive into this, and should look forward to the final book in the trilogy."
--Science Fiction Book Club on Agents of the Internet Apocalypse From the opening pages of the Internet Apocalypse Trilogy, Wayne Gladstone masterfully embarks on a dreamy story filled with characters both comical and terrifying, anchored in a world both familiar and inventively surreal and written with great wit.
