REVIEWS

Praise for The Gypsy

"A spirit of righteous mysticism makes The Gypsy a compelling read."
"This combination fantasy and police procedural (Wambaugh on acid) is several cuts above the troll-and-unicorn dreck that floods the genre."
--Booklist (starred review) on The Gypsy

"Enthralling."
--Publishers Weekly on The Gypsy

"Fantasy, yes, but it breathes a spirit congenial to the SF reader too...every science fiction reader who dreams of long light years passing, strange peoples, wild adventure. Brust and Lindholm have given SF its gypsy god."
--Analog on The Gypsy

"A spirit of righteous mysticism makes The Gypsy a compelling read."
