Library Journal review!

My editor, ericreynolds, just tipped me off to Library Journal's review of my novel, Transcendence. They really seem to get what I was doing:

In the near future, technology pushes the world toward self-destruction. As a teenage hacker attempts to use his skills to find a girl he once loved and unwittingly betrayed, a supertycoon uses his artificial constructs to increase his control over the world. Actors in a virtual reality drama start a real-time war in space, while an artificial intelligence decides to try on a physical form and live as a human. Short story writer McKitterick’s first novel tells a larger-than-life cautionary tale of men and women in crisis and of the dangers posed by an out-of-control technology.

...and end with this nice recommendation:

VERDICT: Readers who enjoyed the cyberpunk feel of Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash as well as the cosmic fiction of James Blish’s Cities in Flight should welcome the author’s full-length SF debut.

Woohoo!

They also gave a nice review to another Hadley Rille Books author, Terri-Lynne DeFino (bogwitch64), for her book Finder. Nice day for HRB!

Now I'm heading out to celebrate with some friends at Henry's!

Best,
Chris

That's pretty awesome, and I'm even more excited to read it.

When I finally have another social moment with you, I'll have you sign my copy of your book. I'll even put you on my bookshelf next to my beloved signed copy of Snow Crash.

It's nice you post these glowing reviews so all of us who don't have books out can pretend they're what ours will sound like. ;)
