"Air is wonderful...Ryman is a true, graceful writer and this is a novel you move into and inhabit for as long as you can make it last."
Kit Reed - author of Seven for the Apocalypse & @expectations
"Reading the first sentence of Geoff Ryman's brilliant new novel is like passing through a Tipping Point. The instant he touches you with his story, you're caught, and the world changes as suddenly as Paul Revere changed America: because it brings the news. Air is a message from the future beyond broadband. More than a message, it's a tip. Listen to Geoff Ryman and you're already on the inside track."
- John Clute, author of The Book of Endtimes
"Say that we are all already living in Air, and need with all our heart to know better what it means and how it works. That would be one way of describing the continuous pleasure of reading this great novel--the thrill of recognition. It is like a magic mirror--we are in Chung Mae and she is in us, and her world is utterly alive. What more can fiction do."
- Kim Stanley Robinson, author of the Mars Trilogy & The Years of Rice and Salt
