Editorial Reviews

Review

"And so we come to the final volume in Nathan Larson's edgy, spectacular, dystopian trilogy...It is the narrator, his driving prose, his struggles against the darkness, that makes [the books] impossible to put down...Go back to the beginning, read them in order, admire the growth in the central character, be swept up in the details of a city struggling not to die, and mourn the loss of what we have and might so lightly throw away. But if you can't do that, read this one anyway. You won't regret it."
--Reviewing the Evidence

"Readers who enjoy noir or hardboiled mystery, dystopian fiction, or gritty urban fantasy should absolutely try the series."
--Killer Nashville, Book of the Day

"Nathan Larson's writing style in this book is a lot like the style within Pygmy by Chuck Palahniuk--short and somewhat curt sentences that allow the complex and multi-level story to be easily understood and enjoyed. This book is definitely for anyone who enjoys the crude humor of Palahniuk and the fantastical storytelling of Orson Scott Card."
--SLUG Magazine

Praise for the Dewey Decimal series:

"The most incredible thing about Larson's novel is just how credible it is...and the prose is perfect, as tweaked and jumpy and memorable as the man known as Dewey Decimal. I'm a Library of Congress girl myself, but Larson's uncannily original fiction deserves its own number within any system of library classification."
--Laura Lippman, author of After I'm Gone

"Larson's vividly imagined world and his quirky narrator are likely to win him a cadre of loyal fans."
--Publishers Weekly

"Whiplash prose, teeth-gnashing dialogue and post-civilization concepts that make a crazy (amateur) librarian in a pitch-black world a hell of a lot of fun...A good time for fans of the likes of Charlie Huston and Charles Stross."
--Kirkus Reviews
