“Norman Spinrad, one of the sacred heroes of my coming-of-age as a writer, has never quit redefining his role as dissident and sage, inviting the bullies of the present moment outside for a throwdown, and somehow also conjuring possible futures despite all the odds against those—he’s that most miraculous of creatures, a Utopianist’s Dystopianist.“
—Jonathan Lethem

“Spinrad is without a doubt one of the best contemporary American novelists. Endowed with an acuity as terrifying as it is pertinent.“
Rolling Stone

“Norman Spinrad, like his characters, takes great risks; the rewards for readers willing to meet him halfway are commensurate.“
New York Times Book Review

“Norman Spinrad is a hip, worldly, high-tech Nostradamus whose engaging predictions are occurring on CNN as you turn his pages.“
—Timothy Leary

“Norman Spinrad has a rich and passionate imagination. At once subtle and humane, he’s a very fine writer indeed, working at the peak of his gifts.“
—Greg Bear
