S.E. Zbasnik is the author of the Dwarves in Space series – think Tolkien and Hitchhiker’s merged in a horrific transporter accident – as well as a bunch of other fantasy novels. You can find her on twitter as well as facebook, and hopefully not standing right behind you.
“There wasn’t a single character on the Elation Cru that I couldn’t imagine myself hanging out with…[T]he author somehow manages to make things like pulling wires or hitting buttons on a console seem intense. It’s great.
You should absolutely pre-order this book. You should read it, hopefully enjoy it, and do a little dance that this is a sci-fi book that doesn’t rely on technobabble or each member of an alien species all being the same in order to make its point.”
“Dwarves in Space” is brilliant. The characters are well rounded, interesting, and individualistic enough that it is easy to develop favourites. It’s on to a rollercoaster ride of spills, thrills, chills and the occasional outbreak of lunacy.”
