Praise

“The Light Years is one of best novels about the psychological challenges of relativity I’ve ever read.  This is what science fiction was invented for!”
– James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards.

“Love in the time of relativity. Greene paints a picture of the social complexities of the lightspeed era, with realistic characters navigating interstellar intrigue.” 
– Dan Moren, 
author of The Bayern Agenda

“Laced with politics, science, history, poetry, music, greed, hope, and a little Johnny Cash, this character-rich space opera has a well-developed and believable plot that kept me reading from the opening line to the surprising and satisfying end.”
– Kelly Stone Gamble 
USA Today best-selling author of They Call Me Crazy

The Light Years is a thought-provoking debut from a skilled writer.” 
– E. C. Ambrose, author of The Dark Apostle series.

“The toll difficult moral choices take on families is the core conflict of this clever far-future debut from Greene… Sophisticated worldbuilding and diverse, emotionally-resonant characters make Greene an author to watch.”
– Publishers Weekly 

“The main characters are distinctive, Greene’s dialogue lively and the prose vivid.”
– SFX Magazine

“On the surface, you get an engrossing space opera, but if you look deeper you will find explorations of poverty, arranged marriage, and the toll that difficult moral choices take on families.”
– Kirkus Reviews
