Tales from the Crypto-System/Maloney, Geoff/Paper/1894815238/S047-B1
"At his best, Geoffrey Maloney uses the surreal in the same way as J. G. Ballard, but with his own twists. A Moloney story is not to be trusted - it will turn on you when you least expect it, and your brain will be irrevocably altered." - Jeff VanderMeer.
"These stories are both alluring and challenging, the tales of future attitudes as well as lives." - Sean McMullen.
"The 21 stories abound with AI doppelgangers and glimpses of technocratic fallibility that echo the speculative brilliance of Philip K. Dick and J. G. Ballard...For all their SF trappings, these stories are full of sensitively developed characters whose humanity buoys the intricate plots and weighty themes." - Publishers Weekly.
"Maloney never gives easy answers. He presents complex situations - be they about politics, love, anthropocentrism, racism, etc. - and lets these complexities play out in a manner that is always less than pat and that always rings true." - Locus Online.
