"Achieves a level of excellence equivalent to one of Ramsey Campbell's books, neither condescending to his youthful readers nor slighting his adult ones. Now, that's a truly scary accomplishment!"—Asimov's SF magazine

'Segue: Into the Strange is a wonderful collection of short stories, set in various, sometimes-invented places. Keith Brooke's strange, other-worldly locations and cultures are flawless in their texture and rationality. There wasn't a tale that did not have me hooked from the start.'
–Garry Kilworth

'Keith Brooke's prose achieves a rare honesty and clarity, his characters always real people, his situations intriguing and often moving.'
Jeff VanderMeer

'"I am so here! Genetopia is a meditation on identity - what it means to be human and what it means to be you - and the necessity of change. It's also one heck of an adventure story. Snatch it up!'
Michael Swanwick

'Genetopia is quite remarkably fascinating.'
John Clute

'As usual with Keith Brooke, there are some excellent, clearly-written stories here... if 'Passion Play' is not a warning against the dangers of unprotected sex in an sf milieu, then I don't know what it is'
