Editorial Reviews


"A remarkable guided tour through the field―a kind of nonfiction companion to Among Others. It's very good. It's great." ―Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing, for Among Others

"This is certainly going to be a book that I'll go back to again and again." ―Andrew Liptak, Kirkus Reviews, for What Makes This Book So Great

"There are the books you want to give all your friends, and there are the books you wish you could go back and give your younger self. And then there's the rare book, like Jo Walton's Among Others, that's both."―Charlie Jane Anders, io9, for Among Others

"Akin to a genre version of Nancy Pearl's Book Lust. Walton's affection for many of these titles is contagious, and fans will find their own reading lists growing." ―Library Journal, starred review, for What Makes This Book So Great

"A well-informed and thoroughly engaging companion, especially for fans of contemporary SF." ―Toronto Row, for What Makes This Book So Great
