"A flat-out ferociously good novel.... Reads like a surrealist smashup of Pynchon and Pratchett, Vonnegut and Heller." --Austin Chronicle

"Harkaway delivers plenty of action and surprises.... Likely to be this season's major conversation-starter." --San Francisco Chronicle

"A gripping, satirical, postapocalyptic war epic populated with mimes, ninjas, bureaucrats, chimera, and gun-toting nerds." --New York Magazine

"Very funny and hugely entertaining.... And brilliant. Read it." --Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Bewilders, amazes, entertains.... a Catch-22 for the 21st century.... a work of extraordinary imagination and charisma...genius" --The New York Observer

"Leaves the reader gasping for both adjectives and description. It's a powerful and accomplished first novel that weaves elements of romance, mystery, SF/F and--yes--thriller together in a way that leaves no doubt that the master storyteller gene really is something that can be passed along." --January Magazine

"Vivid and exciting. Harkaway manages to meld a vision of war more germane to today's world, and take it to its most horrifying, apocalyptic conclusion." --Charleston City Paper
