Reviews

"Seriously inspirational for people who are genuinely involved in inventing the future." -- Craig Newmark, founder of CraigsList"Subtly radical (except where it's openly radical), this book and series continues to offer a kinetically involving narrative that can also make you think about our actual world today." --RT Book Reviews, Top Pick (4.5 Stars)"Carefully researched, prescient, thoughtful, and disturbing." --Kirkus Reviews"In Infomocracy, Malka Older built a realistic world where current trends result in new forms of democracy and peace building, based on Internet-like comms and transparency. She extends that in Null States, depicting the evolution of that world as it faces further real world challenges. Both are intellectually challenging and fun to read, and seriously inspirational for people who are genuinely involved in inventing the future." --Craig Newmark, founder of CraigslistPRAISE FOR INFOMOCRACY"Kinetic and gripping, the plot hurtles toward an electoral climax that leaps off the page." --NPR"Futurists and politics geeks will love this unreservedly." --The New York Times Book Review"This brilliant book is unquestionably one of the greatest literary debuts in recent history." --The Huffington Post"A futuristic world with eerie parallels to current events... [an] uncanny political thriller." --The Washington Post"Smart, ambitious, bursting with provocative extrapolations, Infomocracy is the big-data-big-ideas-techno-analytical-microdemoglobal-post-everything political thriller we've been waiting for." --Ken Liu, author of The Grace of Kings"A fast-paced, post-cyberpunk political thriller... If you always wanted to put The West Wing in a particle accelerator with Snow Crash to see what would happen, read this book." --Max Gladstone, author of the Craft Sequence"A frighteningly relevant exploration of how the flow of information can manipulate public opinion...timely and perhaps timeless." --Kirkus Reviews starred review"Older's sparkling debut, the first full-length novel from the novella-focused Tor.com imprint, serves as both a callback to classic futurist adventure tales by the likes of Brunner and Bester and a current examination of the power of information." --Publishers Weekly"In the mid-21st century, your biggest threat isn't Artificial Intelligence--it's other people. Yet the passionate, partisan, political and ultimately fallible men and women fighting for their beliefs are also Infomocracy's greatest hope. An inspiring book about what we frail humans could still achieve, if we learn to work together." --Karl Schroeder, author of Lockstep and the Virga saga
