Praise

Praise for This Virtual Night

“Friedman perfectly balances action and characterization while keeping up a page-turning pace. Readers won’t want to put this one down.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Master of science fiction Friedman will satisfy your cravings for all things space-opera in this second Alien Shores novel, packed with action and imagined worlds and filled to the brim with sparkling detail.” —Newsweek

Praise for This Alien Shore

“C. S. Friedman borrows some big ideas from writers like Cordwainer Smith, Frank Herbert, and Samuel R. Delaney, and runs with them. Instead of stumbling under the burden, she succeeds in making the material her own.” —The New York Times

“Friedman keeps her tale moving at a vigorous pace that’s boosted through an abundance of well-chosen details…. It is likely to hold readers’ interest tenaciously.” —Publishers Weekly

“Once again Ms. Friedman offers us great richness in both concept and detail, ingeniously weaving together two strong plotlines and piquant characters into a superior reading experience.” —Romantic Times

“A wide-ranging, action-packed space opera. This Alien Shore is guaranteed to entertain those who like to be swept up in an adventure with lots of characters, dangers, and revelations.” —Science Fiction Chronicle

“Concept and culture-building wise, This Alien Shore is brilliant.” —Little Red Reviewer

“In many ways, C.S. Friedman’s work reminds me of William Gibson’s—unique settings, complex and fascinating (though not necessarily likeable) characters, cool ideas and technology, a smart and savvy style.” —Fantasy Literature

“Friedman depicts a vast galaxy filled with diverse human kinds.” —James Davis Nicoll

“There is so much of interest here and rather than spend paragraph after paragraph describing it all, which I could easily do, I will simply tell you to read it. It is a great book and well worth your time.” —Worlds Without End
