Critics Review

  • ‘Nate is the wielder of a unique and delightful imagination’
    – Adrian Tchaikovsky

    ‘This is a kind of Lonely Planet guide to the various sub-genres of SF and Fantasy, written as though the work of a crass, blundering hack journalist. It’s splendidly satirical and hilariously funny, provided you don’t mind literary sacred cows being slaughtered with gleeful, merciless abandon.’
    Financial Times

    ‘A love letter to the worldbuilding of fantasy fiction’
    Grimdark Magazine

    Praise for Nate Crowley

    ‘Weird and hilarious’ – Buzzfeed

    ‘Surreal and occasionally horrifying’ – Daily Dot
