"This twisty David-and-Goliath tale is clever, fast-paced, and frequently funny, taking plenty of well-deserved potshots at corporate greed."
“Windswept is a classic noir story shot full of space-rum and rocketed into the future.”
“Part action-adventure, part space opera, part farce… Recommended for Star Trek fans who loved stories like ‘The Bell Riots’.”
Dark Matter Zine
“This mélange of fast-paced action, character study, social study and witty dialogue makes up a thoroughly enjoyable narrative treat.”
Sci-Fi and Fantasy Reviews
Like A Boss
“Like A Boss is a laugh-in-your-face rejection of grimdark cynicism and cyberpunk dystopia. It’s a flag-waving, singing-out-loud celebration of people doing the right thing even though it will be hard (and conscious of the cost to themselves), because they know it’s the right thing to do, damn it. It’s a celebration of hope and trust and community. I loved it.”
X + 1
“It’s gloriously entertaining SF. Better yet, it’s positive, hopeful, idealistic SF.”
“Near the climax of Like A Boss [Padma] delivers a little economic speech that makes as strong a case for unions that I’ve read this year.”
