Editorial Reviews

Review

“Beautiful, brutal and full of the kind of off-hand inventiveness that the best SF trades in, Ninefox Gambit is an effortlessly accomplished SF novel. Yoon Ha Lee has arrived in spectacular fashion.” (Alastair Reynolds)

"A dizzying composite of military space opera andsheer poetry. Every word, name and concept in Lee's unique world is imbued witha sense of wonder." (Hannu Rajaniemi)

“I love Yoon's work! Ninefox Gambit is solidly and satisfyingly full of battles and political intrigue, in a beautifully built far-future that manages to be human and alien at the same time. It should be a treat for readers already familiar with Yoon's excellent short fiction, and an extra treat for readers finding Yoon's work for the first time.” (Ann Leckie)

StarshipTroopers meets Apocalypse Now – and they’ve put Kurtz in charge...Mind-blistering military space opera, but with a density of ideas andstrangeness that recalls the works of Hannu Rajaniemi, even Cordwainer Smith.An unmissable debut.” (Stephen Baxter)

"Astriking space opera by a bright new talent." (Elizabeth Bear)

“Forsixteen years Yoon Ha Lee has been the shadow general of science fiction, thecalculating tactician behind victory after victory. Now he launches his greatmanoeuvre. Origami elegant, fox-sly, defiantly and ferociously new,this book will burn your brain. Axiomatically brilliant. Heretically good.” (Seth Dickinson)

"Ahigh-octane ride through an endlessly inventive world, where calendars areweapons of war and dead soldiers can assist the living. Bold, fearlesslyinnovative and just a bit brutal, this is a book that deserves to be on everyawards list." (Aliette de Bodard)

“Daring,original and compulsive. As if Cordwainer Smith had written a Warhammer novel.” (Gareth L. Powell)

A tight-woven, complicated but not convoluted, breathtakingly original space opera. (New York Times)
