Praise for Robert Charles Wilson
"In his quiet way, Robert Charles Wilson has produced one of the most impressive bodies of work in contemporary science fiction."
--"The New York Times"
"Wilson sets out to remind us, and possibly himself, of what there is to fall in love with in SF, and he succeeds."
and for "The Chronoliths"
"Wilson is a master of character development, comparable to the late Theodore Sturgeon....This superb novel, combining Wilson's trademark well-developed characters and fine prose with stunning high-tech physics, should strongly appeal to connoisseurs of quality science fiction."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)
"Wilson's writing is assured.... Satisfaction lingers even after the last bit of suspense fades away."
--"Toronto Star"
"If you read science fiction for its scientific extrapolations, then there's much here to satisfy. If, like me, you read the genre for its examinations of human lives in a crucible, then The Chronoliths also delivers the goods."
--Nalo Hopkinson
