Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a madcap mash-up of retro-sf, full of fearless heroes and heroines dashing about like Flash Gordon meets the Keystone Cops." ― Matthew Hughes, creator of Henghis Hapthorn & the Archonate novels

"Fans of the comic novels of Jasper Fforde will feel right at home, and the wonderful illustrations by Schenck add to the fun, making this one of the real treats of the year." ― The Toronto Star

“Grab your ray pistol and get ready, because Slaves of the Switchboard of Doom is Bradley Schenck’s delightful, loving tribute to a future often imagined yet never realized. Welcome to Retropolis!” ―Dayton Ward, New York Times bestselling author of Star Trek: Elusive Salvation

“You might think (as I did at first) that this is not your kind of SF, but it is. Slaves of the Switchboard of Doom is the novel you've been waiting for -- you just didn't know it. Not only can Bradley Schenck write (his arch, blithe tone hides a skillfully constructed plot), he's an amazing artist. I love the setting, the characters, the sly references. This novel gave me a happy buzz. Remember when SF used to be upbeat and fun? Well, the fun is back and it's right here.” ―F. Paul Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of Repairman Jack

“Schenck presents the best future from our past. Robotastic and charming.” ―Lawrence M. Schoen, author of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard

“Like a madcap retro-tech collaboration by Terry Pratchett and Isaac Asimov. I loved it!” ―Jamies Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea

“Funny and action-packed.” ―Allen Steele, author of Arkwright
