Praise and Reviews
"Achieves moments of surprising depth and beauty, with real insights into human history and psychology as well as the immense and varied wealth of writing in the last half of the 19th century. It's a virtuoso performance." – Locus Magazine
"Lavie Tidhar's The Bookman is simply the best book I’ve read in a long time, and I read a lot of books. If you're worried that Steampunk has turned into a mere fashion aesthetic, then you'd better read this one. It's a stunningly imaginative remix of history, technology, literature, and Victorian adventure that's impossible to put down. The book is immensely smart and readable at the same time. I very much hope that it's the first of many such books. Buy it."- James P Blaylock
"The Great Game is a very fine addition to the [Bookman Histories] series, and can be enjoyed without having read the others, though you owe it to yourself to read the entire series if well detailed alternate history science fiction is your sort of thing."- Starburst Magazine
