Praise For Life's Lottery

"Put “LIfe’s Lottery” on your summer reading list" - Retrenders

"Newman can be twisted, deranged and just plain off the charts. Life’s Lottery takes it to a whole new level, leaving the reader responsible for their own actions and unable to just melt into the subtle brain space of reading a book. Life’s Lottery is an enjoyable, albeit highly twisted, way to spend an afternoon." -  The Geek Girl Project 

"A lot of fun." - FanGirl Confessions

"Brilliant AND hugely entertaining. Recommended unreservedly." - Comic Book Resources 

“a pretty staggering achievement...the issues of free will and predestination will definitely remind you of the Netflix experiment [Bandersnatch], played out on a slightly bigger canvas” - Barnes & Noble SFF Blog
