Praise For…

"Hugo and Nebula Award winner Leckie collects 18 stories for a stunning showcase of her talents. Leckie plays with tone... but in every borrowed style (and in the style that is deeply her own), the detailed worlds, intelligent plotting, and clear-eyed compassion make these stories standout. ... Leckie’s fans will treasure this."—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"An acclaimed SFF novelist's first short-story collection... Bloodily clever and darkly comic... The many different approaches Leckie takes to her subject are amazing."—Kirkus

"There are few who write science fiction like Ann Leckie can. There are few who ever could."—John Scalzi

"Powerful."—The New York Times on Ancillary Sword

"The sort of space opera audiences have been waiting for."—NPR Books on Ancillary Sword

"No science-fiction series as descriptive of our current political and cultural moment or as insistent that we open our eyes to it."—Slate on Ancillary Mercy

"A gripping read, with top-notch world building and a set of rich subtexts about human rights, colonialism -- and (yes) hive mind sex."—io9 on Ancillary Sword

"By turns thrilling, moving and awe-inspiring."—The Guardian on Ancillary Justice
