Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Stross continues to mix high and low tech in amusing and surprising ways. . . .[he] weaves a tale worthy of Robert Ludlum or Dan Brown. Publishers Weekly on The Hidden Family
It's simply a great adventure, full of danger, of plots within plots, of forbidden love and political murder. Orson Scott Card on The Family Trade
The Hidden Family is a festival of ideas in action, fast moving and often very funny, but underpinned by a rigorous logical strategy. . . .Stross's breezy, almost Heinleinian mode of narration is on fine display in The Hidden Family. Locus
The Clan Corporate offers more proof, if any were needed, why Charles Stross has become universally acknowledged as one of science fiction's major new talents. Mike Resnick
“For sheer inventiveness and energy, this cliffhanger-riddled serial remains difficult to top.” Publishers Weekly
“Well-written and filled with compelling characters…Fans of the series will not be disappointed by this action-packed installment.” RT Book Reviews
