War Dogs

War Dogs is simply too spare for its own good; it should be vociferous in its climax, not whispering.


The Peripheral

The Peripheral is a poignant, alarming and exciting vision.


Symbiont
Kirkus Reviews : Symbiont (November 25, 2014)

For those who’ve been pining for a human/tapeworm romance.


Symbiont

In Symbiont she upturns the entire table, throwing the greater game into such disarray that I for one am no longer sure I want to play.


The Peripheral

Even if Gibson moves on entirely from this milieu, with this new novel he has produced another cogent, entertaining science fiction thriller that speaks to the great concerns of the present day.


The Three-Body Problem

The result is a book that offers a unique perspective on science fiction, but isn’t much fun to read.


The Silent History

A'The Silent History,’ by Horowitz, Derby, Moffett: reviews a dystopian epic with a mysterious, unstoppable global epidemic type of plot goes, “The Silent History” is no better or worse than most products of its ilk.


The Peripheral

Gibson remains as unnervingly prophetic as ever, making his futures feel like they’re just around the corner, products of humankind’s inability to act when necessary, transforming a sci-fi whodunit into a work of fiction that feels both ahead of its time and frighteningly relevant to today’s world.


The Peripheral

Like the best of Gibson's early, groundbreaking work, it offers up the same kind of chewy, tactile future that you can taste and smell and feel on your skin; that you believe, immediately, like some impossible documentary, because the thing that Gibson has always been best at is offering up futures haunted by the past.


Lock In

Lock In is smart, interesting, entertaining, and highly recommended.


The Peripheral

Gibson goes on and on this way when establishing the world and characters of The Peripheral, the clunky prose a disservice to the otherwise insightful vision on display.


The Peripheral

The Peripheral can be exciting in bursts, much like a lottery ticket blowing in the wind that you chase down. Will it be a winner? Ultimately, The Peripheral can’t make up its mind on where it wants to go, what path it wants to travel.


The Peripheral
Kirkus Reviews : The Peripheral (October 28, 2014)

This is quintessential Gibson: gonzo yet cool, sharp-edged, sophisticated—but ultimately, vaguely unsatisfying.


Goodhouse

This reader was spellbound by Goodhouse — by its grim illustrations, its unrelenting pressure, and its central proclamation: to sate its own anxieties, society will sacrifice vulnerable bodies in any way it sees fit.


The Abyss Beyond Dreams: A Novel of the Commonwealth

Abyss is the work of an author at the top of his game, you will love it and need no further recommendation from me, as both a place to start reading Peter’s books and one for fans. Personally I can’t wait for the next book!


The Abyss Beyond Dreams: A Novel of the Commonwealth

Solidly engrossing fare for the series’ faithful.


Consumed: A Novel
Slate : Bibliodrome (October 07, 2014)

Cronenberg’s prose reads as though he’s transcribing the sound and image of a movie he hasn’t made.


A Vision of Fire: A Novel

It’s a deeply confused and almost anti-suspenseful book, lumbering grimly towards the cumulative cliffhanger through a fog of implausible chit-chat.


The Time Roads
Kirkus Reviews : The Time Roads (October 15, 2014)

Feels slightly unfinished but in an interesting and appropriate way.


War Dogs
Kirkus Reviews : War Dogs (October 15, 2014)

An intriguing story, but fiction at this high a level deserves just a little more.
