Selected Blurbs

 
“Even non-sci-fi readers will be bowled over by…Tobias Buckell’s Crystal Rain… Violent, poetic and compulsively readable.” Maclean’s (Canada) on Crystal Rain
 
“First-class space adventure, with tip-top characterization, action, and world-building.” Booklist on Ragamuffin 
 
“Buckell delivers double helpings of action and violence in a plot-driven story worthy of a good blockbuster.” Publishers Weekly on Sly Mongoose
 
Buckell focuses as much on action-thriller set pieces as he does on teasing out a plausible future, placing the novel somewhere around the intersection of Michael Crichton and William Gibson. Kirkus on Arctic Rising

“…fulfils all the expectations of an ambitious space epic, but also works as a clever allegory about resistance to oppression, the struggle for autonomy, and the strength of a creole culture drawing on many heritages.” Caribbean Beat Magazine on the Xenowealth novels Crystal Rain, Ragamuffin, and Sly Mongoose.

“…a writer to shelve there with C.J. Cherryh, Alastair Reynolds, Dan Simmons and those few other writers who have managed to adopt the advantages of mainstream literature without giving up the skilled storytelling and sense of wonder of old style SF.” Critical Mass on Ragamuffin
