Livin' in the Blurbs

“If F. Scott Fitzgerald had ever imbibed himself into a science-fictional state of mind, subsequently pouring his talent for vivid images and acid observation into a futuristic dystopian extravaganza, the result might very well read like Jon Armstrong’s debut novel. This formidable newcomer has given us, in Michael Rivers, a grey Gatsby who will revisit your reveries long after the last page is turned.”
— James Morrow, author of The Last Witchfinder

“Grey is a truly extraordinary and original work--a deft and raucous mash-up of William Gibson and J.D. Salinger by way of Fellini. It’ll change your outlook, your brain chemistry, and your wardrobe.”
— Catherynne M. Valente, author of The Orphan’s Tales

“Grey is a fascinating book. It’s a fusion of the quasi-apocalyptic corporatism of Alfred Bester’s The Stars My Destination with Bladerunner and a big hunk of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.”
— Jay Lake, author of Trial of Flowers

“Two thumbs up... I couldn’t put it down.”
— Cherie Priest, author of Four and Twenty Blackbirds

“...a stylish, weird, funny, and inventive debut.”
Tim Pratt, author of The Strange Adventures of Ranger Girl
