Review

"Oh, what world-building! Schroeder is a master."
--Cory Doctorow
Praise for "Sun of Suns" ("Kirkus" Reviews Best of 2006; An "RT Book Reviews" Top Pick)
"Outrageously brilliant and absolutely not to be missed."
--"Kirkus Reviews," starred review
"I loved it. It never slowed down. The background is fascinating and the characters held my attention. It reminded me a little of "The Integral Trees," with technology a little more advanced."
--Larry Niven
Praise for "Queen of Candesce"
"One of our most ingenious devisers of exotic, fantastic settings as well as a spinner of ripping yarns.... Schroeder's world-building, storytelling, and character-drawing chops seem strong enough to give even "Known Space" run for its money."
--"Locus"

A classic space opera full of feudal castles and wooden ships, ancient compasses, old revolvers, and frothing beakers on one hand, and flying bikes, space travel, and cyborgs on the other. Toronto Globe and Mail on Sun of Suns
