“Brutal, brooding, brilliant . . . an angry vision of violence wrapped around a complex meditation of memory, trauma and hegemony. This is cyberpunk with soul” – Yudhanjaya Wijeratne (author of Salvage Crew)
“High-octane, immersive SF at its best. 36 Streets is sure to become a classic in the field.” – Kaaron Warren (Shirley Jackson Award-Winner)
“Napper paints a prophetic and uncomfortably believable vision of the future. A fascinating interplay between advancing technology and wish fulfillment, 36 Streets is ambitious in scope while remaining deeply human.” Tim Hickson (Hello Future Me)
“A fun, frenetic journey of neon-blasted streets, sinister underworlds and oodles of brutal tech, rendered in cutthroat prose” – Jeremy Szal (author of Stormblood)
“Beautiful, shimmering, ghostly science fiction” – Anna Smith Spark (author of The Court of Broken Knives)
“Rising star of Australian speculative fiction T.R. Napper gives us an engrossing, intriguing action-packed duty tour of a tech-thick, violence-infused, neon-scorched near future gangland Vietnam. Highly recommended.” – Cat Sparks (author of Lotus Blue)
