From Locus Magazine's May 2011 issue
The last story in Terror in the House: The Early Kuttner, Volume One was published in April 1939. Within a year, he would marry C.L. Moore. Science fiction and fantasy would never be the same again, and this book captures one of its best writers on the threshold of its transformation.

From Locus Magazine's May 2011 issue
Miéville is far less interested in the exoticism of his setting and characters, or in their science fictional ingenuity, than in their capacity to express some rather complex themes, among which are issues of colonialism, betrayal, and perhaps most of all language and reality.
Tuesday 17 May 2011 | Monitor, Directories

From Locus Magazine's May 2011 issue

Monday 9 May 2011 | Reviews
This is a slightly split decision; Howard thinks it’s pretty dire, while I think it’s almost passable, if you set your expectations low. Like, “I hope it’s better than Ghost Rider” low…
