The People of the Sea
'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.'
'Keith Brooke's prose achieves a rare honesty and clarity, his characters always real people, his situations intriguing and often moving.'
'"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!'
'Genetopia is quite remarkably fascinating.'
'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'
