"This isn't the usual post-environmental apocalypse/alien invasion survival book... Readers of science fiction and those interested in environmental issues will question the current wisdom about our environment and climate science, as well as how much effect humans may--or may not--have on the future." -- School Library Journal (April 2012) "A very impressive and obviously heartfelt work." --www.bookgasm.com "It's hard to imagine a better writer of science fiction in America today than Nancy Kress - to call Kress a science-fiction writer seems too limiting. She's one of our best writers." -- Salt Lake Tribune "I highly recommend this book." --www.NerdsInBabeland.com "A disturbing, lively piece of fiction." --www.SeattlePI.com "Nebula- and Hugo-winner Kress mixes time travel, global catastrophe, and mysterious aliens in this strong postapocalyptic tale... Kress handles the crisscrossing timelines with cool elegance." -- Publishers Weekly (March 19, 2012) "An elegant novella that combines several wildly different science fiction ideas into a tight package... Expect to see this one on the final ballots of the major awards next year." --www.tor.com "A highly intelligent, sublimely understated glimpse into humankind's future - it's comparable in thematic impact to Walter M. Miller, Jr.'s classic A Canticle for Leibowitz ." --Paul Goat Allen, www.bn.com
