About the Author
Praise For Doomsday Book…
"A stunning novel that encompasses both suffering and hope.... The best work yet from one of science fiction's best writers."
-- The Denver Post
"Splendid work -- brutal, gripping and genuinely harrowing, the product of diligent research, fine writing and well-honed instincts, that should appeal far beyond the normal science-fiction constituency."
-- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The world of 1348 burns in the mind's eye, and every character alive that year is a fully recognized being.... It becomes possible to feel...that Connie Willis did, in fact, over the five years Doomsday Book took her to write, open a window to another world, and that she saw something there."
-- The Washington Post Book World
