Karen Traviss
"Traviss is a valuable addition to the world of Science Fiction."
Automatic Reload (2020)
Ferrett Steinmetz
"Frederick Pohl said good science fiction shouldn’t just predict the automobile, but also the traffic jam. Automatic Reload does that for body-modification, AI, and computer-aided combat. We get the traffic jam, plus road rage, hyper-surveillance, and hails of bullets...but we also get the fragile people trying to survive it all. I hope it isn’t prophetic, but I’m afraid it might be."
