Editorial Reviews

Review

"A thrilling near-future noir mystery....A fascinating book from a writer with great vision." Charlaine Harris, author of the Sookie Stackhouse Novels series

“Smart, weird dystopia.” ―Margaret Atwood

"The skill with which Ashby introduces her various SF elements is worthy of the best Heinlein.... Company Town never falters in its pacing. It's a terrific ride." ―Locus

"This is brave, bold, crazy storytelling at the edge and doesn't read like anything else I've seen up or down the pike." ―Chuck Wendig, New York Times bestselling author of Aftermath

"A brilliant and chilling look at our post-oil future. I haven't been this hooked by an SF novel for ages." ―Charles Stross, author of the Laundry Files series

"Loved Company Town, Madeline Ashby’s wonderfully imaginative new sci-fi mystery with a fascinating female protagonist." ―Feminist Frequency

"The world is an updated version of Raymond Chandler's, with gray morals and broken characters, and Hwa's internal monologue has just the right balance of introspection and wit...[a] very solid page-turner." ―Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating mix of detective noir and near-future SF with cinematic world building and a broken, but resilient, unquestionably badass heroine." ―Booklist

"Ashby's action scenes come thick and fast...the ideas, setting and relationships that make the story really worth reading." ―New Zealand Herald



EditCopy to TI

"The skill with which Ashby introduces her various SF elements is worthy of the best Heinlein....Company Town never falters in its pacing. It's a terrific ride." --Locus

"I'm an immense fan of Ashby's work...It is often profound, and it is never boring." ―Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing
