Editorial Reviews

Review

"Hang on! Hugo-winner Zahn takes off on a rip-roaring interstellar train ride with hard-boiled hero Frank Compton…tough-guy PI fiction and characters straight out of Dick Tracy make this night train a juicily familiar joyride." --Publishers Weekly on Night Train to Rigel
 
"An inventive plot…Zahn's strength is hard science fiction, and he excels at technical description. The comic-book-like nonstop action will attract fans of the genre." --Romantic Times BOOKreviews on Night Train to Rigel
 
"Zahn plays out his suspense as deftly as always, building a tense situation and ultimately defusing it in believable and pleasing ways." --Locus on Manta's Gift
 
"Zahn paints every futuristic detail with gleamy realism and mock-scientific dialogue that streams with starship hardware and military trooper talk. Immensely appealing." --Kirkus Reviews on Angelmass
 
"Through in-depth characterization, as well as toothsome scientific and political mysteries, Zahn unfolds an intricate tale of adventure sure to please his many fans." --Publishers Weekly on Angelmass
