Praise

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
