"Man-eating hippo mayhem is my new favorite mayhem. Gailey's
debut is a gift of violent, unexpected glee and I can't wait for
more capers with Winslow Houndstooth and Ruby the stealth hippo."
--Kevin Hearne, New York Times bestselling author"This
hippopotamus epic is just as preposterously fun as you could
possibly have hoped -- but it's also a brave, clever alternate
history. River of Teeth packs one hell of a gold-plated
bite." --Charlie Jane Anders, author of All the Birds in the
Sky"Weird and wonderful, River of Teeth proves handily why Sarah
Gailey is a writer to watch." --Chuck Wendig, New York Times
bestselling author of Star Wars: Aftermath and
Invasive"Blisteringly imaginative, and written with a sly, sharp
wit." --Kate Elliott"A rowdy, rollicking river ride from a sly and
whimsical new writer. A damned fine adventure for everyone. And I
haven't even mentioned the hippos yet. Get reading." --Kameron
Hurley, Hugo Award-winning author of Mirror Empire and The Geek
"River of Teeth is a wonderfully original debut." --NPR "Fun and charming with killer hippos and even better characters." --Kirkus Reviews"Fans of seedy westerns will greatly enjoy this tale of gold-tusked hippos and the miscreants who ride them." --Publishers Weekly"This is a thing I now know about Sarah Gailey: she is a word-magician who can render searing touch on a flat page and suspend disbelief flawlessly. The world of River of Teeth feels vast, and navigable due to her skill. The characters within, deep and yet intimately knowable." --Fran Wilde, Nebula-nominated, Andre Norton- and Compton Crook-winning author of Updraft and Cloudbound"I love Sarah Gailey's River of Teeth. It is sexy and raucous and wild and beautiful and violent--aka, everything I've ever wanted from a lawless caper through the American West. Gailey's storytelling is clever and top-notch, and River of Teeth will leave you with adrenaline humming through your veins. I can't recommend this highly enough." --Alyssa Wong, Nebula Award-winning author of "Hungry Daughters of Starving Mothers"
