Editorial Reviews

Review

Publishers Weekly starred review
In Wendland's intricately plotted, character-driven debut, pulpexploration meets philosophical speculation, and a moralisticsensibility is fused with Philip K. Dick's paranoid fantasies and RayBradbury's awe of alien encounters. Mykol Ranglen, a writer andconsultant on the planet Annulus, is drawn out of his solitary existence when his ex-lover Mileen disappears, and Henry, her fiancé, is founddead. Mykol fears that Mileen has discovered one of the Carrier-LockedIntegrated Programs (Clips)--technology created by the alien Airfane andostensibly intended to protect humanity from the malignant Moyocks. Heraces to rescue her and locate the Clip, fearing that the technology isnot as benign as it seems. Annulus is a vividly described, futuristicworld, complete with political tyranny and social inequality. Impendingdoom pervades ripping action scenes, the Lovecraftian theme of ancientwarring aliens lends cosmic menace and authenticity to a grandiosemystery, and Mykol's transformation from distanced observer to activeparticipant in a galactic conspiracy is deeply absorbing. (July)

From the Back Cover

"Inside are alien worlds and titanic space habitats and a brilliant and paranoid hero, all skillfully blended together with long-vanished galactic secrets."  --from the Forward by William H. Keith, New York Times Best Selling Author

". . . an exotic and transcendent technology, but the truly amazing machine operative in this novel is the one Wendland stores in his skull:  a device that can ingest back issues of Black Mask and Astounding, extract their respective hardboiled and hard-SF essences, and bring forth a narrative bursting with the pulpistic pleasures we've all been missing without knowing it." --James Morrow, World Fantasy and Nebula Award-winning author

". . . gripping and clever and infused with painterly vividness.  It manages to be both a page-turning yarn and a thoughtful piece of universe-building, bejeweled with startling concepts, and with a sinuous and carefully wrought plot."  --Philip Palmer, award-winning novelist, playwright, and screenwriter
