Review quote

"This combination fantasy and police procedural (Wambaugh on acid) is several cuts above the troll-and-unicorn dreck that floods the genre." --Booklist (starred review) on The Gypsy "Enthralling." --Publishers Weekly on The Gypsy "Fantasy, yes, but it breathes a spirit congenial to the SF reader too...every science fiction reader who dreams of long light years passing, strange peoples, wild adventure. Brust and Lindholm have given SF its gypsy god." --Analog on The Gypsy "A spirit of righteous mysticism makes The Gypsy a compelling read." --New York Review of Science Fictionshow more
