"Vivid and accurate prose, a gripping, imaginative story, a terrifically inventive setting, a hard-bitten, indestructible hero, and an intelligent, fully adult heroine---we haven't had a science-fiction novel like this for a long time." ---Ursula K. Le Guin, National Book Award--winning author of "The Farthest Shore" and "The Left Hand of Darkness""The Half-Made World is refreshingly unlike any other novel I've read. Felix Gilman writes like a modern-day Dickens drunk on rich invention and insane war."---Stephen R. Donaldson, "New York Times bestselling author" of the Chronicles of Thomas Covenant "A much-needed breath of fresh air in dystopian fiction. Utterly compelling. Trembling with invention and adventure. Reads as if it's the love child of McCarthy's "The Road" and Le Guin's "The Dispossessed." Highly recommended!" ---Eric Van Lustbader, "New York"" Times" bestselling author"Felix Gilman's "The Half-Made World" takes the brutality of the Wild West and twists it into an epic fantasy that left me staggered. It brings the sense of wonder back to fantasy by creating a complex and visceral world unlike anything I've read. This is a stunning novel." ---Mary Robinette Kowal
