"Jack McDevitt is that splendid rarity, a writer who is a storyteller first and a science fiction writer second. In his ability to absolutely rivet the reader, it seems to me that he is the logical heir to Isaac Asimov and Arthur C. Clarke. "

— Stephen King

"Science fiction fans refer to the Sense of Wonder: that kick that reminds us how big, complex, and mysterious the universe really is. Jack us this sense of wonder, straight up and undiluted."

— Baltimore Sun

"McDevitt is the real thing; a writer with depth, integrating scientific issues with human concerns on a vast stage, lit by vivid colors."

— Gregory Benford
