“I was drawn into looking at “Wĭthûr Wē” by your premise, which seemed to echo something of Isaac Asimov’s “Foundation” series. It’s hard to get compared to the master, but you’ve managed it in my view. This is very good writing—actually Asimov’s wasn’t always, so you’re ahead on points—beautiful imagery of the planet and realistic dialogue (another great plus, as it’s damned hard to do).”

“This is the most enjoyable sci-fi novel I have read for a very long time. I was an avid reader of the genre for years and somehow lost the enthusiasm. This book revived all those old pleasures. Wonderful world building skillfully woven into the narrative with no info dumping. What I love about “Wĭthûr Wē” is the emphasis on the humanity of its characters, no cold, clinical two dimensional space opera heroics, but real people living through difficult times and making tough decisions.”

“Funny how one can throw a glance at a book and know immediately that it is outstanding. When I started reading, Arthur C. Clarke yelled at me from the first page. But this is a different voice. There is a confidence in the writing so that the juxtaposition of the unearthly with the homely creates a disturbing atmosphere. The standard of writing is consistently high.”

“Wow! and again...Wow! Your imagery is astounding. Your turn of a phrase even more so. And your imagination exceeds all. I don’t read a lot of science fiction, but this one might change my mind. Well done!”

“I am not a sci-fi kind of girl, but you had me hooked immediately. You had me from your first sentence....Your writing is flawless. I wouldn't dare change a thing. At first, I was going to liken this to Star Wars, but then I realized that it would be an insult. Firstly, Withur We deserves to be a best seller, ten times over. Then, it should turn into a blockbuster movie for the new generation. It should be this generation’s Star Trek—even that is an insult.”
