His work has appeared in Playboy, Nature, MIT Technology Review, Asimovs, 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 worldEncyclopedia of Science Fiction. His current novel project, Camp Tribulation, is a tale of love, faith, and alien invasion set in the Alaskan bush.
