Reviews

"A tale of insidious, corporate-capitalist implications . . . and the human consequences of a life without dreams." --Booklist

"Fittingly titled, as the compulsive plot will keep you turning pages, way past your bedtime. The Sleepless does what only the best science fiction can do: create a world so boldly changed--but so hauntingly true--that it teaches us much about our own." --Sam J. Miller, Nebula Award-winning author of Blackfish City

"Move over, Minority Report. Victor Manibo's The Sleepless has everything I want in a near-future whodunit: an irresistible 'what if' premise, a twisty and desperate murder investigation, and a razor-sharp examination of the chillingly recognizable dark side of a seemingly bright future. The Sleepless delivers on its promise; I could not close my eyes." --Fonda Lee, author of the Green Bone Saga
"A fascinating murder mystery set in a world plagued by an epidemic of insomnia, The Sleepless is the corporate thriller our dystopias deserve. Manibo asks not merely how such a pandemic would change our society, but how the corrupt systems would exploit and perpetuate it." --John Wiswell, Nebula-winning author of "Open House on Haunted Hill"

"Manibo has crafted a sharp, immersive dose of speculative fiction, a potent blend of science fiction and noir. The Sleepless will prove its name: you won't be able to put it down, even as bedtime beckons." --Alex Segura, bestselling author of Secret Identity
"A meditative near-future thriller that explores grief, meaning, and time in a world that's terrifyingly plausible." --Lincoln Michel, author of The Body Scout

"The Sleepless is an expertly crafted tale of exploitation and deceit set within the eldritch horror of a neverending capitalist grind." --K. M. Szpara, author of First, Become Ashes

"Bracing pageturner. . . . blending SF and mystery/thriller tropes with social justice concerns to discuss discrimination, ambition, betrayal, family, memory as defining who we are, and capitalism's devastating will to power." --Library Journal's "Top Fall Debut Novels"
