"Guy Adams is either barking mad or a genius, I haven't decided. His truly fantastic debut is like being caught in a theme park with a killer clown - fun, adventure, the odd cream pie - and a sharp knife when you're not looking."- Mark Chadbourn
"Great idea in very incapable hands. He should email his ideas to Dan Simmons and let him write it." - 'Daniel2' on Goodreads
