Reviews
"The Editors is an enthralling, ambitious and sharply observed contemporary thriller - no citation needed. Already one of the best reporters of the digital age, Stephen Harrison shows he's just as adept at fiction. Every page draws the threads of a (world wide) web of intrigue, made taut by relevance, energy, and the author's formidable understanding." ―Richard Cooke, Contributing Editor, The Monthly

"Harrison has written the great HTML novel we've all been waiting for. The high-stakes online battles between users bring information warfare to life with verve. The Editors is essential reading for anyone interested in the nature of truth in the digital age." ―Omer Benjakob, Disinformation and Cyber Reporter, Haaretz

"Thrillingly contemporary and shot through with charm and wit. The Editors is a compelling look at what drives people to seek and share the truth in a world increasingly alienated from its facts." ―Joanne McNeil, Author of Wrong Way

"The Editors is refreshingly modern and instantly familiar to anyone who has worked, played, or lived online this decade. When perception is everything, the stakes for who determines our collective narrative are higher than ever. A sentiment eloquently captured by this engaging novel." --Jeremy Burge, founder of Emojipedia

"Beneath the visible surface of Infopendium.org is a drama of conflicting interests and conflicted motives. Can such a global project survive when well-meaning volunteers become corrupted by their own dogmatism, fear, and greed? Harrison portrays the heretofore stranger-than-fiction world of a crowd-sourced encyclopedia in a gripping tale of global intrigue." --Joseph Reagle, Co-editor of Wikipedia @ 20 (MIT Press)

"There's a new adventure on almost every page, and it's hard to stop reading as you fall down the rabbit hole." --Pete Ekman, The Signpost
