PRAISE FOR THE GREAT FORGETTING
“The Great Forgetting is blasphemous, riveting, insane, and glorious.” ―Andy Howell, astrophysicist
“Renner is skilled at constructing intricate puzzles in his books . . . Here the author makes the most outlandish conspiracies plausible not only to his protagonist but to readers as well . . . The plot might be over the top, but it’s a fun ride.” ―Library Journal
“Renner weaves conceivable means and motive through a variety of conspiracy theories and a reimagined reality to create a unique blend of genres. Anything but predictable, this meandering but suspenseful tale will certainly keep readers guessing.” ―Courtney Ophoff, Booklist
“A fascinating concept . . . worth the read.” ―Kirkus Reviews
“Packed with thrills.” ―Publishers Weekly
"A lost friend, a mysterious Pacific island and an evil conspiracy come together in strange ways in Renner’s sci-fi/conspiracy thriller/fantasy novel . . . A tale you won’t forget." ―New York Post
PRAISE FOR THE MAN FROM PRIMROSE LANE
“Ambitious and innovative . . . If you like your fiction tidy and predictable, look elsewhere.” ―Patrick Anderson, The Washington Post
“Fascinating and unpredictable, with shades of Stephen King and H. P. Lovecraft as well as Douglas Adams, [The Man from Primrose Lane] never loses touch with the human story of loss, guilt and fate that is at its core.” ―Laura Wilson, The Guardian
“The Man from Primrose Lane barrels along, fueled by Renner’s addictive storytelling . . . It’s quite the interesting ride.” ―Robin Vidimos, The Denver Post
“[The Man from Primrose Lane] features superbly drawn characters and escalates into a genre-bending narrative (noir, sci-fi, and more) of thrills and twists. A great choice for readers who enjoyed Tana French’s In the Woods or any work by Philip K. Dick.” ―Library Journal
“Brilliantly intricate . . . [with a] fantastic finish [and] compelling, interesting characters . . . I couldn’t put [The Man from Primrose Lane] down.” ―Jessica Strider, SF Signal

The Great Forgetting does touch on a lot of conspiracy theories, and even if you're someone who thinks these theories are ridiculous, you will like this book. Trust me. It's a real treat.
While you're at it, read his other book "The Man From Primrose Lane."

The second half is maddening poor in logic. Be prepared to be disappointed.
