Some more kind reviews of Resistance are in as we head towards publication day – less than two weeks to go now! The Resistance central page is up.
‘It’s a great read that spans the world and somehow manages to keep things organized and highly entertaining without skipping a beat.’ – City of Films
‘Basu does an excellent job of creating characters that readers can relate with and fully understand on an emotional level. Several of the novel’s characters are originally from Basu’s home country of India, but the story and dialogue between characters is so well written that it easily overcomes any cultural barriers’ – BGG After Dark
Meanwhile, Turbulence is getting talked about as well, and I’m very relieved to see it’s not forgotten:
‘Samit Basu explores not only superhero origins, but where they will go from there, with a spot-on mix of excitement, thoughtfulness, and emotional depth… Basu never misses the mark. And so this book is as highly satisfying as its sequel is eagerly anticipated.’ – Mugglenet/A Fort Made of Books
‘Samit Basu offers a superhero story about people who aren’t American (though American superhero comics exist and are referenced), and in which women aren’t automatically relegated to the status of sex-objects. I really liked it.’ – Fistful of Wits
‘Basu’s novel is so engaging because there’s a wonderful mix of action and humor… Truly, a pyrotechnic feat of the superhero-oriented imagination.’ – Asian American Lit Fans
In other news, I was in an SF Signal Mind Meld a few days ago, on villains.
And in other other news, advance copies of The Adventures of Stoob are here!
