`The very best science-fiction and fantasy is often set somewhere else, during another time, while still also very much being about the here and the now, and The Grand Dark continues that essential tradition. Kadrey has written for us a beautiful nightmare - one that's often eerily familiar - showing a theatrical world set on the edge of war, and losing itself in the shadows of brutality and oppression' Chuck Wendig, bestselling author of WANDERERS `Stunning. The hard, spare, considered voice that's driven Kadrey's gonzo supernatural noir has been honed to a deft Kafka-esque edge. Unsettling and dreamlike, seductive and bleak, the jaws of The Grand Dark gape to devour you' Max Gladstone `Artisanal gene mod and robots and coal dust and a big middle finger to the oligarchs, plus bicycles!' Kevin Hearne `Wildly ambitious and inventive fantasy' KIRKUS
