What The Critics Say

…vivid scenes at a kinky sex club on the outskirts of Greenwich Village with references to the bursting economic bubble and the federal government’s bank bailout.
—Publishers Weekly, on Trading Dreams
Winning the silver medal for historical fiction at the Independent Publisher Book Awards this year, Degelman’s GATES OF EDEN is the story of seven young rebellious Americans involved in the anti-Vietnam war and civil rights movements.
—Uprising Radio, Sonali Kolhatkar
This profound coming of age low keyed fantasy is an engaging thought provoking tale starring a fascinating lead character.
Alternative Worlds, on The Conjurer's Boy
How Clements connects the dots between the two fraught relationships is just one of the rewards of this clever and entertaining book.
—Midwest Review, on All at Once
Japanese myth beautifully percolates into the lives of the three young people.
Harvard Independent, on the twice-award-winning novel Sazzae
An incongruous, gorgeous, eclectic mêlée that will open your eyes and mind to the huge potential amongst international authors – you may reach the end with an appreciation of the staid, stagnant state of Western literature and its devices.
—The Truth about Books, which voted Voice from the Planet 'Book of the Month'
