Praise For Ragamuffin…
“All in all, Ragamuffin is a winner.”—San Jose Mercury News
“Buckell represents an important force behind the genre’s change. Buckell’s work deals with complex racial issues in a way worthy of the self-proclaimed ‘literature of ideas’: head-on, with no visible flinching, while still managing to give its readers a rollicking good time.”—The Seattle Times on Ragamuffin
“Ragamuffin establishes the author as a signature voice of Afro-Caribbean speculative fiction.”—Library Journal
“Buckell plays with Caribbean and Aztec cultures, bending their exotic flavor to technology-flavored ends. . . . A lot of fun.”—Publishers Weekly on Ragamuffin
“First-class space adventure, with tip-top characterization, action, and world-building. May Buckell enjoy a long, productive career.”—Booklist on Ragamuffin
“Full of wild-eyed action, feats of bravery, exotic beings, and odd ways of thought, startling uses of technology, and bold manifestos on freedom. I expect this is not the last we’ll be seeing of these ‘duppy conquerors.’”—Sci Fi Weekly (Grade A) on Ragamuffin
