Reviews

Winner! 2016 Endeavour Award Finalist: 2016 Philip K. Dick Award

"Playing God is dangerous: Edge of Dark is an intelligent, thoughtful look at what it might mean to coexist with superior AIs that we ourselves have created. Brenda Cooper's universe is detailed, inventive, and ultimately dazzling. I will remember Chrystal for a very long time." --NANCY KRESS, winner of multiple Hugo and Nebula awards "Edge of Dark is bold, immersive, boundary-pushing sci-fi; a new breed of transhuman space opera. It asks all the right questions: What's the line between human and posthuman? How would immensely enhanced creatures treat mere humans? And how would we baseline humans view them--as our successors, our future selves, or our exterminators? Whatever opinion you enter this book with, it'll surprise you. Read it."
--RAMEZ NAAM, author of Nexus and Crux Praise for previous books by Brenda Cooper: "What The Creative Fire does, and does well, is marry the character-driven focus of Cooper's writing with an intriguing protagonist, a well thought out setting and spins a fascinating story."--SF Signal "I loved The Diamond Deep. Excellent writing, fabulous story, and an emotional punch that leaves you wishing that Cooper wrote faster. Damned fine storytelling." --J. A. Pitts, author of Forged in Fire
