"An agreeable blend of oriental fantasy and noir-ish sleuthing: a polished, well-organized debut, complemented by Dedman's nice light touch on the tiller."--"Kirkus Review "(starred review) ""The Art of Arrow Cutting" is equal parts urban fantasy, noir thriller, and Japanese myth. A clever and engaging book."--"Sci-Fi Universe" "A very impressive achievement."--"Locus" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

Fast but not too furious.Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 May 2013
Lots of ideas and images I enjoy reading about in this book. Heavy Japanese mythology crossover with an American drifter figure. Fun and light. I enjoyed it a lot but it's a train journey sort of book not one that will have you scratching your head to work out what's in store. It would make a good graphic novel or a Sin City style film. Give it a go.
Witty, Engrossing, and Informative.Reviewed in the United States on 7 April 2000
This book is just plain fun to read. The author weaves modern America with Japanese mythological monsters, and creates a story line and characters that are fun. The magic in the story follows a coherent internal logic, and the characters bleed and suffer and have realistic personalities and reactions. The book leaves you hoping for more adventures using these characters.
