Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is a terrific read. Gosh, Mr. Townley can write his little socks off. Lean, terse sentences move this tale along at a blistering pace...
Highly recommended--a very unusual and fascinating read."
Big Al's Books and Pals review site.
"I loved this book to gushing point--fairly rare for me. Why? In a nutshell, it's expertly written in a distinct voice, has a delightful central character and a great cast of supporting geeks and sports fanatics, an interesting, well-paced plot and, one of my pet delights, a touch of metaphysical/philosophical insight."
Tahlia Newland, Awesome Indies
"Zen Buddism is something I never expected to see in an I Robot type of story."
Tony McFadden
