“Ortiz is a master at assembling rock-solid facts, elucidating informed critical appraisals, and welding the two streams of discourse into a very readable narrative with the allure of a novel.” – Asimov’s Science Fiction
“It’s a beautiful job, a wonderful portrait of a career and life.” – Robert Silverberg
