“Sinopticon reads like Black Mirror and Love, Death, and Robots squeezed together and poured onto the page. I laughed, I cried, I read and re-read, I stayed up through the early hours if it meant finishing one of the longer stories. This book is everything I love about Science Fiction.” — FanFiAddict
“Sinopticon is an engaging brew of unsettling ideas and lively prose.” — ParSec Magazine
