Praise for The Wellstone:
"An ideal blend of wit and superscience, set in a brilliant future age when wealth and immortality just aren’t enough. McCarthy gives an adventurous new spin to the ongoing rebellion of the young."
– David Brin
"A standout job…full of action, humor, top-notch speculation and intriguing characters…Such ambition and creative playfulness should serve this book well when award lists are made up."
– Paul di Filippo, scifi.com
"If Robert Heinlein had written Lord of the Flies, he probably would have come up with something like The Wellstone."
– Rocky Mountain News
"Wil McCarthy considers post-scarcity economics, leadership politics and immortality–all in an adventure that would have made Robert A. Heinlein proud."
