Praise for Enigmatic Pilot:

The language is superb, the subject deliciously original and the story like nothing else I’ve read.  This book is hilariously funny and grim at the same time.  I feel privileged to read it.  There’s a new star up there.  Kris Saknussemm is a brilliant writer. Enigmatic Pilot could have been written by a stripped down Pynchon.  It’s not just tasty — it’s delicious.

-Michael Moorcock

Enigmatic Pilot is a rip-roaring trip through a fantastic mid-19th century America…written in the spirit of Mark Twain’s novelistic journeys.”

-The Wall Street Journal

Kris Saknussemm’s Enigmatic Pilot, with its shades of Twain and Melville’s Confidence Man, its own unique style and vision, sense of humor and remarkable characters, is a balls out adventure story, a fascinating “historical” account of the Civil War era, a love story, and a mirror within which a reader might glimpse the current state of the union.

-Jeffrey Ford

A tapestry of wonders, a new American myth.

-Rudy Rucker

Praise for Kris Saknussemm’s Zanesville

“Part picaresque, part brilliantly inventive black comedy, Zanesville is one of the most creative, edgy, and entertaining novels sf has spawned in a decade.”—Booklist (starred review)
“A savage, fiercely intelligent satire.”—January magazine
