Product Details


“A flat-out ferociously good novel…. Reads like a surrealist smashup of Pynchon and Pratchett, Vonnegut and Heller.” —Austin Chronicle

“Harkaway delivers plenty of action and surprises…. Likely to be this season’s major conversation-starter.” —San Francisco Chronicle

“A gripping, satirical, postapocalyptic war epic populated with mimes, ninjas, bureaucrats, chimera, and gun-toting nerds.” —New York Magazine 

“Very funny and hugely entertaining…. And brilliant. Read it.” —Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

“Bewilders, amazes, entertains….  a Catch-22 for the 21st century…. a work of extraordinary imagination and charisma…genius” —The New York Observer

“Leaves the reader gasping for both adjectives and description. It’s a powerful and accomplished first novel that weaves elements of romance, mystery, SF/F and—yes—thriller together in a way that leaves no doubt that the master storyteller gene really is something that can be passed along.” —January Magazine

“Vivid and exciting. Harkaway manages to meld a vision of war more germane to today’s world, and take it to its most horrifying, apocalyptic conclusion.” —Charleston City Paper
