Quotes

<b>PRAISE FOR JOHN BIRMINGHAM</b>: <br />
'Birmingham's gripping novel launches readers into a genocidal interstellar war amid sudden violence and dark humor... Birmingham alternates between gut punches and laugh-out-loud humor, with some gore and thought-provoking philosophy thrown in for good measure... Plenty of twists, sharp turns, and fateful encounters will keep readers guessing and turning pages. This jarring, engrossing story of a species-wide fight for survival is recommended for all science fiction readers' <i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review), on <i>The Cruel Stars</i>. <br />
'Plenty of grist and humour' <i>Sunday Times</i>, on <i>Axis of Time</i>. <br />
'An excellent page-turner, laced with black humour' <i>FHM</i>, on <i>Axis of Time</i>. <br />
'Glorious excitement and meticulous density' Sci-Fi.com, on <i>Axis of Time</i>. <br />
'The action is nonstop, the characters very real – and very different from each other – and, to coin a phrase, it makes you think'

S.M. Stirling, on Final Impact
