Praise

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
