Twinmaker

“Twinmaker took my breath away. A triumph of thrilling action and vivid

imagination.”-Alison Goodman, author of EON and EONA

 

“A mind-blowing adventure about what it means to be human, and what it means

to find ourselves.”-Scott Westerfeld, author of UGLIES and LEVIATHAN

 

“A gripping YA thriller, coming of age and love story that transports the

reader to a future that looks a whole lot better than it really is …

Highly Recommended.”-Garth Nix, author of SABRIEL

 

“Twinmaker asks smart questions without easy answers, and presents a future

so simultaneously wonderful and terrible you can only believe in it–and

maybe wish you could be there, too. A thrilling, existential head trip

worthy of my favorite anime, I couldn’t stop reading this book. More

importantly, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.”-Alaya Dawn Johnson, author

of THE SUMMER PRINCE

 

“In a time when every second book seems to be a dour dystopia TWINMAKER is a

breath of fresh air. Not just because it’s hugely fun, or because it’s so

smart, but because behind its vision of a world in which distance has been

eliminated by matter transportation lies a book urgently engaged with the

ways social media and technology are transforming us, and unafraid of their

possibilities. I loved it.”

 

“Williams marries accessibly explored moral ramifications of future

technologies-a hallmark of mature science fiction-with a strong, capable

teen heroine and heart-pounding action” -KIRKUS

In Transit 

I’ve decided to take a short break from this blog in order to concentrate more fully on several new projects – one with Garth Nix, one about anxiety and lightning, another about music and deafness, and another set in Antarctica, so there’s plenty to get on with. It’s not my plan to leave the Twinmaker […]
