Review, The Patron Saint of Plagues: “Anderson has some serious writing chops, and he delivers a page turner that is at once a medical thriller, cyberpunk romp and provocative tease…a novel about race and class, science and faith.”—Salon.com
The Book of Seven Hands: “The language is as muscular and as playful as the swordsmen themselves. What’s even more fascinating is that this novella was inspired by an actual historical personage. Very fun stuff.” — Author Julie Rose
The Magician and The Fool: “Those willing to surrender themselves to this talented author’s compelling vision will find a fevered dream universe where understanding in the normal sense is probably not possible, nor even necessary.” — Publisher’s Weekly
Barth Anderson lives in Minneapolis.
