Reviews

“Packed with a highly diverse assortment of bite-sized literary confections, this new DAW anthology should appeal to anyone who appreciates intelligent, lucid conspiracy theory stories à la Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code.”
Paul Goat Allen. Explorations.

“Achieves a nice balance between well-known authors such as Larry Niven, Tanya Huff, and Esther Friesner with not as well known authors such as Stephen Kotowych.”
SFRevu

“Editors Czerneda and Paniccia do a commendable job of bringing together 14 fresh, often inventive stories with a “guardian at the gate” flavor... Enjoy this bright collection of short stories and the tantalizing peeks into they offer into an all too frequently tired genre.”
Monsters and Critics

“Fans of short stories will find much to like in this collection of tales dealing with spies, conspiracies and secret organizations bent on either destroying or saving the world ... certainly delivers as promised.”
Romantic Times
