Reviews

Advance praise for The Caryatids
"Sterling proves again that he understands technology's present and future better than anyone in the field-and that he's able to spin a gripping, compelling, mind-opening yarn whose sweep and majesty encompass all that humanity has to fear and hope for in the coming century. This isn't just a novel, it's a road map to humanity's peaceful reconciliation with our mad, out-of-control technology."
-Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother
"A" "tour de force . . . Of all the horde of SF novels about clones written since that trope was pulled mewling from its artificial womb," "The Caryatids is the first one that nails it."
-Benjamin Rosenbaum, author of" "The Ant King and Other Stories
Praise for The Zenith Angle
"Gleeful, shrewd, speculative, cynical, closely observed . . . The Zenith Angle offers wisdom and solace, thrills and laughter."
-"The Washington Post"
"A comedic thriller for the Homeland Security era."
-"Entertainment Weekly"
"Not so much ripped straight from the headlines as it is an effort to process the blood, guts and greed of the new millennium . . . The entire novel is a setup for an extraordinary rant that reads as if the author had just taken over the podium at a hackers' conference, fueled with tequila, frothing from ever pore."
