<b>PRAISE FOR SCOTT LYNCH</b> A bright new voice in the fantasy genre. <b> George R. R. Martin</b> <b><i>The Republic of Thieves</i></b> Fast paced, fun, and impossible to put down . . . Locke and company remain among the most engaging protagonists in fantasy. <b> <i>Publishers Weekly</i> (starred review)</b> <i>The Republic of Thieves</i> has all the colorful action, witty repartee, and devious scheming that fans of the series have come to expect. <b> <i>Wired</i></b> A fantasy world unique among its peers . . . If you re looking for a great new fantasy series this is one you won t want to miss. . . . In a word: AWESOME! <b> <i>SF Revu</i></b> <i><b>Red Seas Under Red Skies</b> Lynch hasn t merely imagined a far-off world, he s created it, put it all down on paper the smells, the sounds, the people, the feel of the place. The novel is a virtuoso performance, and sf/fantasy fans will gobble it up. <b> <i>Booklist</i>(starred review)</b> <i>Red Seas Under Red Skies</i>firmly proves that Scott Lynch isn t a one-hit wonder. . . . It ll only be a matter of time before Scott Lynch is mentioned in the same breath as George R. R. Martin and Steven Erikson. <b> <i>Fantasy Book Critic</i></b> Grand, grandiose, grandiloquent . . . No critic is likely to fault Lynch in his overflowing qualities of inventiveness, audacious draftsmanship, and sympathetic characterization. <b> <i>Locus</i></b> The kind of witty romp that reminds you exactly how much fun heroic fantasy is supposed to be. <b> <i>SFX</i></b> <b><i>The Lies of Locke Lamora</i></b> <b></b> Right now, in the full flush of a second reading, I think <i>The Lies of Locke Lamora</i> is probably in my top ten favorite books ever.

If you have read it, you should probably read it again. <b> Patrick Rothfuss, <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author of <i>The Name of the Wind</i></b> <i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>
