“Rudy Rucker should be declared a National Treasure of American Science Fiction…simultaneously channeling Kurt Gödel and Lenny Bruce!”  —William Gibson, author of Neuromancer and Pattern Recognition

“Rucker is a mathematician bewitched by the absurdity of the universe, and a writer possessed of a brilliantly witty pen.”  —Publishers Weekly

“Rudy Rucker’s sense of fun is rare indeed. He has been compared to Lewis Carroll, and the comparison is not presumptuous. Like Carroll, Rucker is a mathematician who not only enjoys paradoxes, but can propagate that enjoyment as pure lunatic humor.”  —Washington Post

“Science-fiction author Rudy Rucker is an oddity and a treasure.”  —Wired

“Rucker’s writing is great like the Ramones are great: a genre stripped to its essence, attitude up the wazoo, and cartoon sentiments that reek of identifiable lives and issues.”  —New York Review of Science Fiction
