«Beukes has created an imaginary world that captures the social realities of our time. As entertaining as MOXYLAND is, it is also profound and, dare I say, important ...»

J Robert King, author of <i>Angel of Death</i>

«Lean, sharp, and tightly written, MOXYLAND keeps raising the stakes, from the opening chapter to the uncompromising finale. And with its electronic panopticon, it gives us a dystopia to rival 1984 or Stand On Zanzibar - a future horrifying for its very plausibility»

Gareth L Powell

«Beukes deals with slightly surreal things in very real ways. I'm all over it»

Gillian Flynn

«I recommend it highly»

Paul Cornell

«Moulds language to its own purpose so shockingly, is so gripping and so disturbing, that it will become, in time, a classic ... Sassy, bold, inventive, believable, deeply engaging and overtly, sublimely political, MOXYLAND will draw to itself a wide and appreciative audience»

Psychologies

«Beukes's stunningly original sci-fi thriller chills and thrills to the last breath»

Heat

«The world Beukes has invented is both eerily familiar and creepily different»

Cosmopolitan

«If you're a fan of any kind of science fiction, you'll find something in MOXYLAND to delight you»

Marie Claire

«This fast-paced sci-fi trip has intriguing characters, big ideas, a new lexicon and ... serves as a global warning»

GQ

«Beukes delivers a thrill ride that gleefully merges narrative styles and tropes, almost single-handedly pulling the 'urban fantasy' sub-genre back towards its ground breakingroots»

Publisher's Weekly, starred review

«George Orwell's 1984 meets Bladerunner. Lauren Beukes breaks new literary ground with effortless hipness»

Margie Orford, author of, Like Clockwork

«You don't have to be an SF aficionado to love this novel that is fast, brimming with original ideas and deadly serious»

The Mail and Guardian

«Moxyland does lots of things, masterfully, that lots of SF never even guesses that it could be doing»

William Gibson, author of, Neuromancer

«A technicolour jazzy rollercoaster ride into a dazzling hell ...Like A Clockwork Orange, this book has the makings of a cult success»

André Brink

«A great read, fast-paced, witty, sussed and sexy. It snaps and pops with neologisms and geek-speak, and fizzes and buzzes with gadgetry and techno-toys.»

Michiel Heyns, <i>The Sunday Independent</i>

«The larval form of a new kind of SF munching its way out of the intestines of the wasp-paralysed caterpillar of cyberpunk»

Charles Stross
