Praise for Quantum Shadows:
"Modesitt displays his formidable talent for worldbuilding . . . fans of thought-provoking speculative fiction will be hooked." --Publishers Weekly "Quantum Shadows carries the overtones of our genre's finest writers--Zelazny and Wolfe--which is enough to commend it. . . . Modesitt has given us a vision all his own--a vision with the power to transport and challenge us in equal measures." --Peter O'Rullian, author of The Unremembered
[A]ny book that can suck you into the story as this one did...and then stick with you days after you finished reading it is a complete winner. --The Arched Doorway Praise for Solar Express: "[H]is science fiction ranks up there with Ben Bova, Kristine Kathryn Rusch, Larry Niven, and Jerry Pournelle."--SF Revu "Modesitt Jr.'s boundless imagination flings readers headfirst into a richly imagined deep-space world." --RT Book Reviews, starred review (4 stars) Praise for The One-Eyed Man: "The book hums along with understated power and intellectual attractiveness, delivering thoughtful entertainment in the best classical SF manner." --Asimov's Science Fiction "Modesitt intricately builds a setting that is concrete and believable." --Angela Carter "The One-Eyed Man is actually one of the more powerful and elegant expressions of Modesitt's themes.
