Praise for Slant

"This dense and tense novel...shows that Bear is one of our very best, and most innovative, speculative writers." --New York Daily News

"Seattle's reigning master of hard-edged science fiction takes a chilling look at the plausible near-future." --Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Bear, who's won two Hugos and four Nebulas, should rack up nominations if not wins for this one as well." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)
