"To collectors of science fiction literature, I would say that your library is incomplete without this novel. To occasional readers of the genre, I would recommend it as an experience isolated from anything you may have read before, to skim through the air and make footfall on the red earth with an ever-present rumble of apprehension behind you."
"The book has the feel of a short story told long - quite brave of the author to do this, but it works well simply because it is so well-written and the author has excellent descriptive powers which enable a clear mental picture to be made at all times. It also has surprises, action, hope and despair."
"This could very well become a cult classic. After a few chapters I became annoyed. Where was the story? After a few more chapters I was captivated. The chase is the story, and as the chase continues the land of the Pteronaut and Crawler is unleashed, unfolded, in all it's grim glory. "
