PRAISE FOR THE STONE GODS: "[The Stone Gods] makes an excellent choice for desert-planet reading --scary, beautiful, witty and wistful by turns, dipping into the known past as it explores potential futures..." - "The New York Times Book Review""Some novels are intriguing enough to shorten a plane trip; some even offer a trip into other people's skins and minds. And then there is this kind of book, one that you don't so much read as drink in, refuse to put down, cast inside of like a hunting dog, seeking against all odds the insight that will illuminate everything, a true answer to the fix we're in." --" LA Times""The Stone Gods is a vivid, cautionary tale - or, more precisely, a keen lament for our irremediably incautious species." -- Ursula LeGuin
