Review

"[Gould's] gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle."

"ÝGould's¨ gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle."

"[Gould''s] gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle."

"This is a fun, fast-paced novel that - like Gould's other books - also has a social conscience that gives it more depth than such a story might have in lesser hands. You don't need to have read Jumper to enjoy the new novel, but [it's] highly recommended." - Charles de Lint, "The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction" on "Reflex"

"Though Gould continues to exuberantly press the boundaries of scientific credibility, his gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle." - "Publishers Weekly," starred review on "Reflex"

"The theme of Steven Gould's JUMPER is, quite literally, escape. The first half of JUMPER has a charm and bounce that carry the reader past the implausibility's inherent in the premise-imagine a Holden Caulfield with the power of life or death over the jerks and phonies."-"The New York Times Book Review" on "Jumper"

"Gould makes an auspicious debut with this playful and moving look at a hallowed science fiction concept: teleportation. ...Short fiction has earned this author a reputation in "hard" science fiction, and he applies similar logic to teleportation. ...His warm, delightful, and compulsively readable displays assured storytelling skill." -"Publishers Weekly" on "Jumper"

Though Gould continues to exuberantly press the boundaries of scientific credibility, his gift for placing ordinary people in extraordinary situations against a backdrop of international concerns makes this fast-paced adventure sizzle. "Publishers Weekly, starred review on Reflex"

The theme of Steven Gould's JUMPER is, quite literally, escape. The first half of JUMPER has a charm and bounce that carry the reader past the implausibility's inherent in the premise-imagine a Holden Caulfield with the power of life or death over the jerks and phonies. "The New York Times Book Review on Jumper"

Sprightly first novel combining revenge, growing up, lonely superman and abuse-of-power motifs centered on a classic science-fiction theme: teleportation. ... An exceptionally well-organized debut, with thoughtful ideas, a controlled plot, and characters -- particularly the young protagonist -- portrayed with insight and compassion. "Kirkus Reviews on Jumper"

Gould makes an auspicious debut with this playful and moving look at a hallowed science fiction concept: teleportation. ...Short fiction has earned this author a reputation in "hard" science fiction, and he applies similar logic to teleportation. ...His warm, delightful, and compulsively readable displays assured storytelling skill. "Publishers Weekly on Jumper"" --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.
