'Praise for When Gravity Fails “Like a dive into the eye of a storm.” —The Washington Post Book World   “Fast, cool, clever, beautifully written, absolutely authoritative. A kind of cyberpunk Raymond Chandler book with dashes of Roger Zelazny, Ian Fleming, and Scheherezade—but altogether original.” —Robert Silverberg   “Ingenious, layered, sophisticated, and consistently bloodcurdling, When Gravity Fails kept me awake long after I had finished reading it.” —Spider Robinson   “Great entertainment . . . Places Effinger in the company of writers like Gibson.” —Fantasy Review   “Superior science fiction . . . among the best I’ve come across.” —The Denver Post   “A brilliantly written, knife-edged futuristic detective story . . . destined to be the year’s most intense and emotionally involving SF work.” —Houston Post   “Wry and black and savage . . . there’s a knife behind every smile.” —George R. R. Martin   “Muscular, convincing, yet continuously surprising.” —Richard A. Lupoff   “One of the best cyberpunk novels I’ve read . . . Effinger’s prose is terse, direct, vivid and often laced with an enchanting sense of humor. . . . This is only part of the book’s delightful texture. . . . Gives you a real sense of what it’s like to be an old-fashioned gumshoe in the seedy backreaches of a futuristic Arab nation.” —The Providence Sunday Journal   “Wry, inventive, nearly hallucinatory . . .
