Editorial Reviews


"I was royally entertained. For the duration of the book, I was convinced I understood nanotechnology. Buy this book quick."

-- LARRY NIVEN, Hugo and Nebula Award-winning author of Ringworld --back cover

"Lerner shows what it might be like to live in times of artificial intelligence. An entrancing and frightening novel."

-- JERRY POURNELLE, Prometheus and Robert A. Heinlein Award-winning author --back cover

"' Miracle: an event or act that breaks a law of nature -- especially one attributed to a deity.' The miracles in Edward M. Lerner's new book may be small ones, but they fit the definition in that they definitely aren't natural -- which could be a problem. When God makes a miracle, it's a wonder, but a man-made miracle can as easily be a blunder. We are only human after all."

-- BRIAN LUMLEY, Grand Master of Horror and author of Necroscope --back cover

"Edward M. Lerner's Small Miracles is a splendid combination of hard SF and a techno-thriller about nanotechnology gone really, really wrong."

-- ERIC FLINT, New York Times bestselling author of the Ring of Fire series --back cover

"From its explosive beginning to its explosive finale, Small Miracles is fast paced and very high tech and reads like a Michael Crichton novel. It is extremely intriguing and provocative; I couldn't put it down, especially during the last fifty pages when so many lives were in danger. The epilogue is wonderfully downbeat and open, letting the reader know that the real nightmare has just begun."

-- SFrevu --SFrevu, October 2009 (http://sfrevu.com/php/Review-id.php?id=9421)
