Editorial Reviews


"Other authors have blended soldiering andsorcery, but few have brought Doyle's well-crafted prose style,carefully paced plotting, and depth of characterization to the trope.The gradual revelation of the intricate 'secret history' behind thespell-wielding soldiers and the long-simmering family feuds intertwinedwith that history add intrigue and depth to the slam-bang action of theopening chapters." - Library Journal

From the Back Cover

"Tom Doyle blends an intricately re-envisioned history ofAmerica with literary references, some bold, some sly, in this genre-bendingthriller. It's a feat of craftsmanship to be celebrated!" JacquelineCarey, New York Times bestselling author of the Kushiel series.

"Tom Doyle's American Craftsmen is an exciting crossbetween dark urban fantasy and special ops thrillers. I thoroughly enjoyedit." Eric Flint, New York Times bestselling author of the Ring of Fire series.

"Tom Doyle has taken every Sci-Fi Channel and Coast toCoast radio show concept and incorporated them into a very entertaining novel.At first I was startled to encounter so many themes, then I was drawn to admirethe skills he used to weave them together, and then I just sat back and enjoyedthe show. I also learned the truth about how Stonewall Jackson was killed.Great fun." JerryPournelle, New York Times bestselling author.

"Tom Doyle'sAmerican Craftsmen is a fast-moving and intriguing novel that incorporatesfeatures of combat fantasy, special-operations, alternative history, block ops,and even a touch of romance into a seamless action tapestry offering a farricher read than most action adventures without sacrificing either action orspeed." L.E.Modesitt, Jr.

"Tom Doyle is an American Brother Grimm. It's almost asif Edgar Alan Poe and Philip K Dick teamed up to write a militaryaction-thriller." Nicole Galland,author of I, Iago and The Fool's Tale.

"A seamless blend of military SF and urban fantasy thathad me riveted from the get-go. Like so many hidden corners of America,Tom Doyle's imagination is a strange and marvelous place!" Jeri Smith-Ready,award-winning author of Wicked Game and Shade.

 "From his secret history of the Pentagon to his elaborate depiction of ghostly power in the world around us, Doyle orchestrates a gritty, believable novel. Plus, his craftsmen employ some kick-ass magic tricks!" Mindy Klasky, authorof The Girl's Guide to Witchcraft and How Not to Make a Wish.

"The story is poised at the junction of at least twogenres--military thrillers and urban fantasy. American Craftsmen is politicallysophisticated while still being a hot-blooded, quintessentially Americanstory." Stephanie Dray,author of Lily of the Nile and Song of the Nile.

"Like some mutant blend of Fringe and Tom Clancy, Doyle's AmericanCraftsmen rides the urban fantasy wave in a whole new direction." David J. Williams, author of The MirroredHeavens and The Burning Skies.

Tom Doyle has survived Harvard, Stanford, and cancer, and he writes in a spooky turret in Washington, DC. He is an award-winning author of science fiction and fantasy, and you can find the text and audio of many of his short stories on his website:

Tom Doyle’s latest novel, Border Crosser, tells the far-future adventures of Eris, a psychologically extreme secret agent whose shifting loyalties cause chaos wherever she goes in the galaxy.

Tom is also the author of the contemporary fantasy American Craft trilogy from Tor Books. In the first novel, American Craftsmen, two modern magician-soldiers fight their way through the legacies of Poe and Hawthorne as they attempt to destroy an undying evil--and not kill each other first. In the sequel, The Left-Hand Way, the craftsmen are hunters and hunted in a global race to save humanity from a new occult threat out of America's past. In the third book, War and Craft, it's Armageddon in Shangri-La, and the end of the world as we know it.
