"A creepy, mind-bending quest of identity and mystery, told with a master's skill. No one explores inner landscapes quite like Brian Evenson." --Jeff VanderMeer, New York Times Bestselling author of the Southern Reach Trilogy"A suspenseful, darkly comic tale." --The New York Times Book Review"What is a human? What is a person? The Warren is a truly original exploration of these questions--the kind of work that causes one to re-examine long-held certainties. Profound and deeply unsettling, in the best way possible." --Charles Yu, author of How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe"At the core of the story is the gripping idea of life's slow potential extinction." --Publishers Weekly "Area X meets Duncan Jones' first and finest movie Moon in a marvellously mystifying novella that wants to know what it means to be human in a world where people can be constructed like sculptures shaped from clay." -- The Speculative Scotsman"I loved this story. It's frustrating in a weird, delicious way." -- All About Books"Deliciously frustrating."--LitReactor"I suggest you pick up The Warren to experience the eeriness for yourself." -- Horrortalk "The Warren takes us back to the true potential of the genre, simultaneously asking cosmologically existential questions and lacing those questions with fascinating and unnerving intimacy." -- Angel City Review"It's focussed on the idea of identity and what it means to be real. Interesting and unique... it makes you think. 4 Stars." -- Booked Podcast"I continually had to remind myself that I wasn't reading an already established sci-fi classic. It was that good. a fast read, gripping and engaging from start to finish. A definite must-read." -- SciFi Addicts
