Praise for the Series

“Working with the psychological implications of identity, transformation, and perception, Wendland tangles up the characters and worlds in loops of time and space…”—Publishers Weekly

“…an engrossing and ever-expanding world full of both breathtaking beauty and cosmic horror. In A Suspect Universe is sure to please not only fans of his earlier work but any general sf reader looking to indulge in their sense of wonder.”  Booklist

“I’ve always been easily immersed in Al’s writing. It’s how he turns mystery into hope and awe, his ability to tame the sublime, and the way he can use story to show us the value and excitement of ideas that are far from what we can imagine in this time and this space.”—Heidi Ruby Miller author of the Ambasadora series
