Editorial Reviews

Review

"Alaska. Aliens. The Anti-Christ. AWESOME! Marusek is in full form with this curveball tale about ETs, extremists, snowmobile chases and the meaning of life. Upon This Rock feels like The Puppet Masters crossed with Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. It's snarky, mind-blowing, wild and fun. Thoroughly engrossing." --Jeff Carlson, international bestselling author of The Frozen Sky

". . . Marusek could be the one sci- fi writer in a million with the potential to make an increasingly indifferent audience care about the genre again . . ." --The New York Times Book Review

"David Marusek is one of the best-kept secrets of science fiction, a wild talent with a Gibson-grade imagination and marvelous prose, and a keen sense of human drama that makes it all go." --Cory Doctorow, author of Walkaway: A Novel

"Marusek's writing is ferociously smart, simultaneously horrific and funny, as he forces readers to stretch their imaginations and sympathies. Much of the fun in the story is in the telling rather than its destination . . . exciting and wonderful." --Publishers Weekly

"David Marusek is an extraordinarily gifted new writer, with unique ears and eyes . . . Brims over with imaginative extrapolations." --Seattle-Post Intelligencer

About the Author

Author David Marusek writes science fiction in a cabin in Fairbanks, Alaska. His work has appeared in Playboy, Nature, MIT Technology Review, Asimov’s, and other periodicals and anthologies and has been translated into ten languages. According to Publisher's Weekly, “Marusek's writing is ferociously smart, simultaneously horrific and funny, as he forces readers to stretch their imaginations and sympathies." His two novels and clutch of short stories have earned him numerous award nominations and have won the Theodore Sturgeon and Endeavour awards. “. . . Marusek could be the one sci-fi writer in a million with the potential to make an increasingly indifferent audience care about the genre again . . .”—New York Times Book Review. “Marusek is one of the relatively few contemporary sf writers who seems deeply responsive to the contemporary world”—Encyclopedia of Science Fiction. His current novel project, Upon This Rock, is a tale of love, faith, and alien invasion set in the Alaska bush.
