"In 'The Gleaming' JK creates a world which is at once gritty and also magically real, and where a mechanistic cowboy and a steam punk heroine's humanity is drawn with a deft and delicate hand."
"John Kennedy’s “Looking for Lusca” is about good old dumb, down-to-earth Paul Dibny, and his miraculous discovery beneath the sea. There are some sci-fi, out-of-body experiences, some strange and sensual fantasy love-making with an insect-like plant turned luscious Bahamian dive instructor, and other bait-and-switch carryings-on for your wicked entertainment.

"On this day something wondrous was happening. Something the human beings had been practicing for, for many years, mostly on celluloid and later in digital formats. So that when they looked up, mouths that should have been agape spent a few seconds smirking in recognition. Such a tired trope it was.

Then its legs unfolded. There we go."
