Space Case gets an awesome review from the New York Times!

When you want to be a writer, there are some things you dream about: Seeing your book on the shelves of a bookstore, hearing from readers who’ve loved your work… And getting a review in the New York Times.  Yes, there are other places that review books, but for me, the Times has always been the gold standard.  (Maybe because I’ve been reading this book review every weekend for a very long time.)

It turns out, the only thing better than getting a review in the Times… is getting a GREAT review in the Times.  If you’d like to read it yourself, just click here.

Or, I could give you some nice excerpts.  Like: “…a delightful and brilliantly constructed ­middle-grade thriller.”  Or: “In a novel with such a highly imagined plot, a protagonist this layered is a rare treat.”  Or even: “At its heart, “Space Case” is about exploration for the sake of exploration, offering up the same wonder as a good long look at the night sky.”

I cannot possibly describe for you all how awesome this is.  It’s simply amazing.

Meanwhile, this has also coincided with my Six Minute interview popping up on LitPick today.  Click here for it.

Have a happy holiday, everyone!  See you in the new year!

  1. Mr.Gibbs –

    I was wondering when a reader pointed out the discrepancies in Zoe’s and Alexander’s eye color through the book you said that sometimes spies wear contacts in the field. But, I was just wondering why they would do that without any further camouflage?

    Those spies had just changed out of their camouflage but hadn’t changed their colored contacts.

    According to the Registry, stuartgibbs.com was registered on 2011-01-16. 2010-5-12 was the date of the first blog post. Off question but was there a time when the domain was unregistered?

    When I first started this site, stuartgibbs.com was unavailable, so I had to begin with stuart-gibbs.com. Not much later, stuartgibbs.com became available, so I grabbed it and transferred everything over.

    I change the heading when I feel like it. And this one is festive for the holidays.
