The Seattle Times— “One of the most daring 9/11-inspired novels to emerge after that horrific day more than a decade ago.”
Locus magazine — “A Man in the High Castle for the age of global terror.”
The Associated Press — “A unique and compelling read… the juxtaposition of realities provides keen insight into the real world.”
The New York Post — “Like Philip Roth’s The Plot Against America, in which Nazi-sympathizer Charles Lindbergh defeats FDR for president, the premise behind Ruff’s alternate-history novel is chilling.”
The Mirage book tour kicks off on Thursday evening at 7 PM at the Elliott Bay Book Company. I’ll be doing a reading followed by an onstage conversation with The Stranger‘s Paul Constant. Then on Saturday at 1 PM I’ll be at the Ballard branch of the Seattle Public Library — that event is sponsored by Secret Garden Bookshop. From there I’m off to Portland and Sunriver, Oregon. You can find the full schedule of my book tour events here.

I have a guest post up this week on the Seattle Public Library’s Shelf Talk blog. It’s here.
I’ve also written a Big Idea essay for John Scalzi’s Whatever blog, which should post on Thursday.
