Editorial Reviews

"Stross packs this new novel full of hilarious in-jokes and frenetic set pieces." -San Francisco Chronicle "One of the most enjoyable novels of the year... Stross steps carefully through all of the archetypes of a classic Bond adventure without ever becoming predictable. The resolution is as perfect as it is unexpected." -Jonathan Strahan, editor of the annual Best Short Novels anthology series "Some writers play with archetypes. In The Jennifer Morgue, Charlie Stross makes them sing, dance, and do the dishes for him." -S. M. Stirling, national bestselling author of The Scourge of God "The Jennifer Morgue is Stross's most entertaining novel to date...Astonishing." - Locus "Alternately chilling and hilarious." -Publishers Weekly
