"The action in Andy Nebula moves along at a cracking pace and the characters are well-drawn...Andy Nebula is fast and furious enough to keep even reluctant readers turning the pages, and young teen fans of fantasy and science fiction will not be disappointed." - John Wilson, Quill & Quire
"... gritty and clever...Willett tells a fast-moving tale that has plenty of colour. He wastes few words and presents some good characterizations...All in all, a worthy addition to a young reader's shelf of SF books." - A. L. Sirois, SF Site
"It's the combination of the familiar with the speculative that lifts Andy Nebula above the crowd...From page one we know we are in another time and place thanks to Willett's deft and never-faltering use of a convincing invented slang.... There's a whole lot of story packed into the 166 pages of this trade paperback...Get one copy for yourself, and another for a young person." - Donna Farley
"Willett writes in a humourous and flamboyant style not unlike an old-style detective novel...The novel is fast and exciting with lots of action. It also involves broader themes like differentiating between the authentic and the contrived, values and measuring success, drug addiction and tolerance between species...The writing is trim and humourous but far from vacuous. This book is fun to read. Kids will like it, too." - Jocolyn Caton, The Regina Sun
