Lovecraft Country doesn't just race along, it tears, demanding that you keep turning its pages without interruption -- Cory Doctorow, author of <i>Little Brother</i> A brilliantly conceived story brilliantly executed -- Christopher Moore, author of <i>Lamb </i>and <i>A Dirty Job</i> At every turn, Ruff has great fun pitting mid-twentieth-century horror and sci-fi cliches against the banal and ever present bigotry of the era. * New York Times Book Review * Another only Matt Ruff could do it production. Lovecraft Country takes the unlikeliest of premises and spins it into a funny, fast, exciting, and affecting read -- Neal Stephenson, author of <i>Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon</i>
