SELECTED QUOTES AND REVIEWS

“At long last, orcs as they were really meant to be played! No more the pallid foes of derivative fantasy, but orcs in all their fiercesomeness and cunning.”
– Review of Fantasy Gaming, England, 1988, regarding Raiders of Ironrock adventure game.

“The Truthsayer’s Apprentice has the dark shadows and hard clarity of the Icelandic sagas as well as Deborah Christian’s own unique vision and sensibilities. The world she creates is solidly conceived and thoroughly convincing. The intensity and high drama never slacken. Best yet, there’s more to come.”
- Lloyd Alexander, Newberry Award-winning author of The Black Cauldron.

“Kar Kalim [shows] in painful detail what might be the reality of fantasy, wherein magic only increases the burden on ordinary folk…Will I remember it? For a long time. That, by my definition, is good writing.”
- Piers Anthony

“Mainline is splendid. A fast, fun read, but an ambitious work, too. Keeping the suspense when your protagonist can cross alternate timelines isn’t easy…It’s dynamite.”
- Larry Niven
