Review Highlights

“Highly imaginative.” ~ Publishers Weekly

The Luck of Madonna 13 lives up to every bit of its advance praise. I can’t wait to read the Second Chronicle of the Last Nevergate...a series that is destined for greatness. Ellison is a writer on a par with Paul Di Filippo, Steve Aylett, or Bruce Sterling, full of witty satire and cultural commentary. His first novel is innovative and inimitable, and his writing style displays an amazingly well-honed edge for a new writer.” ~ Gabe Chouinard, January Magazine

“This is a very ambitious first novel, which signals the arrival of a new force on the fantasy and science fiction scene. What a story! The Luck of Madonna 13 is a fun read and an extremely complex yet consistent tapestry; I anxiously await the next panel. So, Mr. Ellison, get to work on that sequel!” ~ Chuck Gregory, Blue Ear

“Ellison is a hugely inventive storyteller with a wry sense of humor, a satirical bent that verges on Swiftian, a gift for evocative wordcraft and a talent for making wacky and bizarre ideas completely believable. The Luck of Madonna 13 is a genre-spanning tale that can be enjoyed at multiple levels by audiences of vastly different ages and tastes.”   ~ Gloria Mandeville, The Mountain Signal

“An impressive, sprawling book that manages to mix the best of fantasy and science fiction. Ellison’s speculation on future pop culture is some of the most thought-out and well presented I’ve seen; the world-building here is top-notch. The sociological satire is both funny and eminently believable, as are his inventions.” ~ Lynn Nicole Louis, SFReader  •
