Praise

“Like his peer Cory Doctorow, Stross has an ironic Generation X sensibility, conditioned, in his case, by time spent in the simultaneously thrilling and boring world of information technology. In The Atrocity Archives, Stross’s genius lies in devoting fully as much time to the bureaucratic shenanigans of the Laundry as he does to its thaumaturgic mission.” – The Washington Post Book World

“Much of the action is completely nuts, but Stross manages to ground it in believability through his protagonist’s deadpan reactions to both insane office politics and supernatural mayhem.” – San Francisco Chronicle

“If this keeps up, ‘Strossian’ is going to become a sci-fi adjective…Charles Stross writes with intelligence and enjoys lifting the rock to show you what’s crawling underneath…The clever results will bring a smile to your face.” – The Kansas City Star

“It’s science fiction’s most pleasant surprise of the year.” – San Francisco Chronicle
