REVIEWS

“...absolutely masterful...a kind of much, much creepier Quantum Leap: the amnesiac protagonist awakes in a new body each morning only to die in it by nightfall.” —Strange Horizons

“Another superb story … unpredictable and with a great ending, this story is another highlight of the [Chimerascope] collection (A++).” —Fantasy Book Critic

“...wonderful...has a taste that lingers...” —SF Crowsnest

“A charming tale about a man cursed to die every day and be reborn as someone else.” —SFRevu

“A fascinating fabulist premise...” — Internet Review of SF
