“If cyberpunk, other worlds, genetic engineering, and social issues are desirable factors in a sci-fi read, then Of Beasts and Men perfectly fits this profile for excellence, offering a sweeping, engrossing saga in a Far Earth Anthology in which social oppression occupies centerfield.” – Diane Donovan, Recommended Reading
