Reviews for Lake of Souls: The Collected Short Fiction

There are few who write science fiction like Ann Leckie can. There are few who ever could. -- John Scalzi Powerful. -- THE NEW YORK TIMES on ANCILLARY SWORD The sort of space opera audiences have been waiting for. -- NPR BOOKS on ANCILLARY SWORD No science-fiction series as descriptive of our current political and cultural moment or as insistent that we open our eyes to it. -- SLATE on ANCILLARY MERCY A gripping read, with top-notch world building and a set of rich subtexts about human rights, colonialism -- and (yes) hive mind sex. -- IO9 on ANCILLARY SWORD
