Review Quotes

"Impressively bizarre . . . Egan may have out-Eganed himself with this one."--Publishers Weekly "Egan (The Arrows of Time, 2014, etc.) specializes in inventing seriously strange worlds; this one might well be his weirdest yet."--Kirkus Reviews

"Hard science fiction in its purest form . . . Egan has always done the science half of science fiction as well as anyone can."--The 1000 Year Plan

"Per usual for Egan, conceptualizing the math and physics that form the foundation of this bizarre sci-fi tale takes some doing, but the results are well worth the effort."--B&N Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog

"I always enjoy Greg Egan's writing. Coupled with his scientific background and fertile imagination, he manages to come up with places and aliens unlike any others . . . not only does Egan offer a unique world and alien race - he also provides a cracking adventure story full of tension and excitement right from the start through to the climactic ending. . . . I love this one. Brilliant and inventive, this book reminds me all over again just why I love science fiction so much."--Brainfluff, 10/10. Reviewed by Sarah J. Higbee

"I haven't been this surprised and entertained by world building for a long time . . . the most brutal and poignant depiction of oppression I have ever seen in fiction. This is why I love Egan's work - he is absolutely unflinching. . . . Like all of Egan's work, Dichronauts is brilliant and sweet, heartbreaking and obscure."--The Kingdoms of Evil

"I enjoyed this one very much--in large part because the characters and problems become very engaging as the story progresses, but also because I just liked messing around with the maths."--The Oikofuge
