9780765311849: The Graveyard Game (Company)

You wouldn't take Lewis for an immortal cyborg: he looks like a dapper character from a Noel Coward play. And Joseph - short and stocky in his Armani suit, with a neatly trimmed black moustache and beard that give him a cheerfully villainous look - you'd never guess that his parents drew the Neolithic cave paintings in the Cevennes. What are these two operatives of the Company doing in an amusement arcade in San Francisco in 1996? They're looking for Mendoza, fellow cyborg of Dr. Zeus Incorporated, who has been banished Back Way Back. They're also trying to solve the mystery of her impossibly-reappearing mortal English lover. Soon they will begin uncovering some extremely hush-hush stuff about what the Company has been doing with the cyborgs it no longer wants in the field.

Review :

"If John LeCarre wrote science fiction, it might read like The Graveyard Game."

"Fourth entry in Baker's wonderful series. . . . By turns hilarious, terrifying, sad, and provocative, and always utterly intriguing. If there's a better time-travel series out there, go find it." (Starred Review)

"Fourth entry in Baker''s wonderful series. . . . By turns hilarious, terrifying, sad, and provocative, and always utterly intriguing. If there''s a better time-travel series out there, go find it." (Starred Review)

"I recommend this without reservation. It''s smart, funny, and sardonic: nicely blended portions of each. Crisp, skillful writing and can''t-miss characters kept me up until two in the morning. I expect you''ll lose sleep, too." -- Harry Turtledove

"Keep your eye on Kage Baker! You never know where she's heading next, but it's always worth going there. She's an edgy, funny, complex, ambitious writer with the mysterious, true gift of story-telling."--Ursula K. Le Guin

"Fourth entry in Baker's wonderful series. . . . By turns hilarious, terrifying, sad, and provocative, and always utterly intriguing. If there's a better time-travel series out there, go find it." - "Kirkus Reviews" (Starred Review) on "The Graveyard Game"

"If John LeCarre wrote science fiction, it might read like "The Graveyard Game"." -"The New York Times"

"I recommend this without reservation. It's smart, funny, and sardonic: nicely blended portions of each. Crisp, skillful writing and can't-miss characters kept me up until two in the morning. I expect you'll lose sleep, too."--Harry Turtledove on "The Graveyard Game"

"Kage Baker has a very good fantasy career in front of her if Anvil is a sample. Here style is infused with a subtle humor that had me chuckling. I liked her hero for being such a practical and unflappable person. She kept me turning in directions that I hadn't expected."--Anne McCaffrey on "Anvil of the World"

"Kage Baker is a fresh, audacious, ambitious new voice, wry, jazzy, irreverent, sharp as a razor, full of daring, dash and elan, sometimes surprisingly lyrical. She is also one hell of a storyteller. If you're reading something by Kage Baker, fasten your seat belt--you're in for a wild ride."--Gardner Dozois on "In the Garden of Iden"

"An ingenious gambit . . . a great love story and a satire on manor life, all topped off by an auto da fe. A savory if there ever was one. . . .The period detail is delicious. What a treat. A beautiful writer."--Cecelia Holland on "In the Garden of Iden"

"Combines historical detail and fast-paced action with a good dose of ironic wit and a dollop of bittersweet romance."--Library Journal on "Mendoza in Hollywood"
