A great review from Greg L Johnson at the SF Site:

“[T]here’s plenty in The Resurrected Man for readers of both mysteries and science fiction. Combining the two is an art form whose standards were established in classic works like Isaac Asimov’s The Caves of Steel and Alfred Bester’s The Demolished Man. Sean Williams’ The Resurrected Man is a worthy addition to this little sub-genre, and should appeal to any readers who like having their cutting-edge social speculation wilded up with a bit of serial murder mystery and gore.”

I’m really digging all the references to The Caves of Steel. This was one of my all-time favourite novels when I was younger, and I was so glad that the movie I, Robot didn’t go anywhere near it. No one’s mentioned Dr Who and the Robots of Death yet, though, and I have to remind myself that that’s probably for the best. 🙂
