Editorial Reviews

Review

★★★★★ - "The novel takes an unexpected turn into strange territory explored in other sci-fi works such as Story of Your Life by Ted Chiang, The Hundred-Light-Year Diary by Greg Egan, and even Slaughterhouse-Five," Edward Barnett, Top Contributor, Vine Voice
★★★★★ - "So much of today's science fiction is dystopian, military, or excessively violent...so when I find an author who creates thoughtful stories or exposes the deeper meaning of life in our universe, I get excited," Douglas Phillips, author of Quantum Space
★★★★★ - "One notable feature of Cawdron's artfully crafted books is that there's no common denominator in plot development, or at least none I recognize," Claus Bernth  
★★★★★ - "The most entertaining novel I've read this year... This is the type of book that introduces ideas that you will think about for many years to come," Edward Imbrie
★★★★★ - "Since The Martian and the Red/Green/Blue Mars saga I had not enjoyed reading a good hard science fiction novel as I did with Losing Mars," Andrés Meza-Escallón
★★★★★ - "A Chinese mission gets into trouble around Mars and that leads to one of the most truly original, and thought provoking sci-fi I've ever read," Al Phillips
★★★★★ - "I wish I hadn't read this book just so I could read it again for the first time," Louise Halkjaer
★★★★★ - "I feel like I have experienced being an astronaut on Mars, everything is told so engaging I feel as if it actually happened," Claus Stahnke
★★★★★ - "Not since Andy Weirs fantastic The Martian have I enjoyed a SciFi story as much," Dr. John Harris
★★★★★ - "One of the more original stories I have had the privilege of reading in a long time," James F. Bowerman
