A World Fantasy Award nominee
"A genuinely fresh imagination at work!"
"Any novel that encompasses John Deere tractors, tobacco planting in the South, wizards at the end of Time, a six-mile wide Mississippi Canyon, singing magic, and a '62 Chrysler racing to the North Pole is covering an awful lot of ground ... Bisson covers that ground as if it were the most natural thing in this world, or any other."
—Guy Gavriel Kay
"The geography shimmers and melts, catfish big as boats are pulled from the Mississippi, the moon crumbles into luminous rings and refugees from burning cities choke the highways. A novel of the New South with a liberal does of the Old ... fantastic and gothic, charming, literate ... teasingly allusive and very entertaining!"
"An action-filled romp through a surreal landscape of ever-changing America."
—Los Angeles Times
"Bisson has dumped magic into non-urban America, and writes about it all with brilliance and poetry."
