"Robotastic." --Lawrence M. Schoen, author of Barsk: The Elephants' Graveyard

"Like a madcap retro-tech collaboration by Terry Pratchett and Isaac Asimov. I loved it!" --Jamies Cambias, author of A Darkling Sea

"Funny and action-packed." --Allen Steele, author of Arkwright

"A madcap mash-up of retro-sf, full of fearless heroes and heroines dashing about like Flash Gordon meets the Keystone Cops." --Matthew Hughes
