Editorial Reviews

Review

"It mixes sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fiction, and mysticism in a pretty dense and interesting way. Compelling themes are introduced, as well as interesting protagonists. In terms of raw writing talent, there is a ton of it here." - Alistair the editor.

"The author has a real gift for imagery, and there is a confidence here that is very impressive. There is a great poetic strength to the writing. 
The story is ripe with emotion." - Beta Reader

"Wow. This piece was absolutely outstanding. It was rich, poetic, and overall a stunning read. The language was masterful, the psychological exploration was poignant and touching, and the conceit was remarkably original." - Beta Reader

"
Radio Sphere is an unusual science fiction novel from debut author Devin terSteeg that handles the concept of a post-apocalyptic Earth in a refreshing new way. The world both before and after the collapse of modern society is alien and mystifying, delivered to the reader in stimulating snippets that really illustrate where we as a people, and the characters, are. The tone of a world that has run away from our full understanding is depicted wonderfully and does a good job of keeping the reader enchanted.
"Charming" is a word often misused when reviewing fiction, yet the term suits the book so well - there's a lot of unique and engaging charm in the book that gives it a distinct personality and a sharpness that really makes it a memorable read. Once you break through that thin shell of the abstract, it's a wonderfully rich and substantive novel - not to mention possessing a really deep cast who reflect the broken world that they have emerged from. A close analog might be the film "The Congress," which is both eerily alien, but also true to life's excesses.
There's plenty that could be said about the read but to really dig into what makes it so brilliant would take something away from the pure joy of discovery that Radio Sphere offers to a potential reader. It's a bit of
a weird little piece, to be sure, but that's not in any way a criticism of the book. The book, in fact, elevates this weirdness to an artform. What's not to love?
Radio Sphere is a
charming and fascinating take on the post-apocalyptic genre that richly deserves attention for its artful delivery of a really stand-out and sophisticated plot. 5 Stars" - SPR Book Review
