ROBERT SAWYER, Hugo Award-winning author of
Hominids: "Minister Faust does it again: an outlandish,
outrageous tour de force by the most innovative prose stylist
in the field, bar none."

COREY REDEKOP, author of Shelf Monkey: "Faust's novel
stands equal to such classics [as
Watchmen and Dark
Knight
]."

CHARLES SAUNDERS, author of Imaro: "Pure satire...
laugh-out-loud comedy. Superhero parodies have been done
before. So have dysfunctional super-beings, ranging from
Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four to the Watchmen. But
nobody has done it as well as the Minister. If Richard Pryor
had ever written science fiction, he might have come up
with something like Shrinking the Heroes Minister Faust is
shaping up to become a one-man New Wave in the SF
genre."

PUBLISHERS WEEKLY (STARRED REVIEW): "Sharp satire of
caped crusaders hides a deeper critique of individual
treatment versus social injustice.... uncomfortable parallels
to real-world urban tragedies in the novel's 'July 16 Attacks.'"

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: "Entertaining... saavy."

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH: "Brilliantly complex … dead-on
satire of our times."

BOOKLIST: "An excellent superhero comedy as well as an
unsettling satire."

BOOKPAGE: "One of the most entertaining books to cross
your path this year...."

STATIC MULTIMEDIA.COM: "… a hilarious, sure-fire page
turner."

THEOCENTRIC: "Hilarious…. Faust's writing style is absolutely
a blast."

THE PINOCCHIO THEORY: "Had me laughing from the first
page to the last. But the book is also a mind-boggling,
multi-levelled allegory of racism and corporate fascism in
America today.... Faust is brilliant."

SFSITE.COM: "A whirlwind of jokes, satire, obscure pop
references, devastating cultural analysis and prose poetry
that never lets up from beginning to end.... This is political
and cultural satire of the highest sort, and Faust is earning a
place among the masters of the craft."

STATIC MULTIMEDIA.COM: "… a hilarious, sure-fire page
turner."




BLOG T.O. SUNDAY BOOK REVIEW: "A major
accomplishment that is laugh out loud funny... This is the
most revolutionary work of SF since William Gibson's
Neuromancer…. I'm confident in saying that this is the
best SF book of the 2007 - maybe the best book of the
year."

SUNQIST BLOG: "The best book of the year... incredibly
important...."

STRANGE HORIZONS: "Hilarious and pointed.... Like all
the best satirists (Swift comes to mind).... Cutting
commentary... true art."

SF READER.COM: "A well-paced suspense novel packed
with twists and bluffs, together with an intelligent satire
on post-9/11 Western society.... Wonderfully written... a
multi-layered and satisfying read."

SCIFI.COM: "[Minister Faust's] insane fecundity and jazzy
verbal dexterity, his sheer brio and exuberance...
reminds me of Ishmael Reed or Steve Aylett... plenty of
moments in this novel where I laughed out loud."

RENO GAZETTE-JOURNAL: "A hilarious new voice....
One of the most compelling reads I've experienced....
One of the most layered, complicated narratives I've
come across, and the ending is particularly chilling."

CHERYL MORGAN'S BEST OF 2007: "A modern-day
Watchmen."

THE GATEWAY: "…scathing social commentary and
political satire [on] the nature of modern journalism and
politics, to drugs, racism and vapid, shallow
celebrities.... Excellent."

SAKURA OF DOOM: "Brilliant."
