My publisher, Four Walls Eight Windows, deserves some credit here. John Oakes (the founder and head honcho) really believes in this book and always has a kind word for it. What’s more, he’s put me in good company: 4W8W publishes Octavia Butler, Kathe Koja, Paul DiFillipo, Rudy Rucker, Abbie Hoffman, Pat Cadigan, and a whole raft of talented, wonderful writers. Literary boutique presses like 4W8W are of the things that give me hope for publishing.

Doctorow embeds exposition in the action and dialogue, making his fiction fun to read–in other words, you don’t have to slog through idle descriptions of technology or mythical family trees.
