Round up time again, and this week we’re taking a look at our 100th book(!), Adam Christopher’s Hang Wire. We’ve been getting some great reviews, and there are also some cool competitions running to celebrate 100 Angry Robot books!

 

Hang Wire by Adam Christopher

We’ve had such a great response to Hang Wire, but before we dive into what you guys have been saying about it, let’s take a look at some of things Adam has been up to.

Hang Wire by Adam ChristopherAdam talks superheroes on the Reader/Writer podcast, and over at BRSBKBLOG, Peter Sutton asks him a few questions about Hang Wire and his writing. Hang Wire also gets a mention in SF Signal’s Mind Meld: Books We Can’t Wait to Read in 2014!

Meanwhile, we’re running a giveaway for Hang Wire  over on Goodreads, with ten copies to send to lucky winners! Adam is also running his own fantastic pre-order competition on his site, with plenty of goodies to be won.

To celebrate the release of Hang Wire, our 100th book, readers of Tor.com in the US and Canada (excluding Quebec) can win a flash USB drive containing all 100 of our books (plus a few extra surprises).

Phew! On to the reviews…

“The sheer volume of ideas is dizzying… an enjoyably fast-paced read.”

- SFX Magazine.

“Christopher fulfils our expectations and more: just when we think the story couldn’t get any weirder, he adds a whole new layer of weird, bouncing from one unexpected moment of goofiness to another, keeping us stuck to our chairs until we think it’ll take an industrial-strength solvent to pry us loose. Days after finishing the book, you’ll still have a grin on your face.”

- Booklist Starred Review

“To put it simply, this is one of the best sci-fi novels in years. Try this one out, it’s a worthwhile experience and one that beats any number of Hollywood blockbusters for pure originality and panache. A fantastic read.”

Kafka’s Cage

“There’s only so much praise you can heap on a book, and I’m going to lay it on thick here. HANG WIRE is a damn cool book. It’s the perfect example of deep and well thought-out characterisation, diversification, multi dimensional plotting, and clever (and at times poetic) writing. ”

Just A Guy That Likes To Read

“The plot within Hang Wire is just as original as his previous work and like before, he loads it up on characters and ideas … it’s a fun novel with a hell of an interesting cast.”
