Lucius Shepard recommends
thumb
Three Marys (2003)
Paul Park
"Three Marys speaks with such eloquent and mesmerizing authority concerning the early formative period of Christianity, it seems that the novel is less an astonishing recreation and re-estimation of those days than the product of brilliant observation. Paul Park's body of work concerning Jesus and his milieu is unique in American letters."
thumb
Lord Soho (2002)
Richard Calder
"The most intriguing author in contemporary science fiction."
thumb
Legacies (1995)
Alison Sinclair
"Strong narrative, intelligence and scope... the kind of book that first attracted me to science fiction. The sort one sees too rarely these days."
