"'Why read Jack McDevitt?' The question should be: 'Who among us is such a slow pony that s/he isn't reading McDevitt'"? - Harlan Ellison "Superb storytelling." - Library Journal "Ideas abound in McDevitt's classy riff on the familiar lost-colony theme. The novel delivers everything it promises with a gigantic wallop." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "Perhaps the best pure storyteller working in the field today." - Washington Post Book World
