"As the sprawling story grinds toward and agreeably neat conclusion, much of the pleasure comes from Gotlieb's ability to suggest an exotic if all too recognizable future in which vast technological resources are mobilized to satisfy age-old urges." --"The New York Times Review" "The best SF novel I have read in years, reminiscent of the very finest work of James Tiptree, Jr., or Ursula K. LeGuin--superbly plotted, ingeniously imaginative, complex yet acessible, compellingly readable, and decorated with evocative poetry, both human and alien." --"The Globe and Mail," One of the Hundred Best Titles of 1998 ""Flesh and Gold" reminded me a bit of several other authors--including Jack Vance and Gene Wolfe--but only in the best of ways. Gotlieb knows how to do it right. Highly recommended." --"Analog" "An evocative, tightly plotted story written with an intrepid disregard for convention and stereotype; it deserves a broader audience. Readers looking for a story to utterly immerse themselves in will find this a satisfying read; it should please Gotlieb's fans, and may even win new converts to her genre."--"Quill & Quire"
