Diamond Deep reviewed by the Romantic Times!

Romantic Times gave The Diamond Deep a four star review.  I can’t link to it yet because it’s in the current issue, but here’s a short excerpt:  “…. the studied indifference of the rich and powerful to the weak and poor is condemned, not praised. A sequel to 2012’s The Creative Fire, this is a worthy conclusion to Ruby’s story.”

I really love this review for two reasons — one is that it’s in Romantic Times at all (which isn’t really any place I expected to be reviewed) and  the second is that it echoes my favorite comment about the book. My editor Lou Anders and I (along with Gabrielle Harbowy and E.C. Myers) were doing a podcast for Speculate! when he called the Creative Fire a science fiction book about Occupy Wall Street.
