“The next big thing in hard SF. Hard to admit, but I think he's better at this stuff than I am.” ―Charles Stross
“Many an anglophone author would kill to turn out prose half as good as this…. Reminiscent of the work of Alfred Bester, who produced two of the finest American SF books of the 1950s, The Demolished Man and The Stars My Destination.” ―The Financial Times
“A brilliant first novel. The Quantum Thief, like so much of the best space opera of this century, is a prodigy house, where propositions are instant heritage, and arguments are eyeclick.” ―John Clute
