Ramez Naam recently sat down with Abby Normal of Yahoo! Voices to talk about his new sci-fi thriller, NEXUS: Ramez Naam on Yahoo! Voices
Books sell, in the long run, by word of mouth. NEXUS has gotten amazing reviews at BoingBoing, Wired, Ars Technica, The Wall Street Journal, and more. But all of those will have their impact only in the very beginning. What matters after the first few months is whether people who read the book recommend it to each other. So far that looks to be going well – on Amazon the book already has almost 80 customer reviews, more than three quarters of them five stars, and the rest all four stars.
So, in summary: thank you, thank you, thank you for helping get NEXUS off to an amazing start! It’s been a great way to kick off the new year.
Kirkus Reviews chooses NEXUS by Ramez Naam as one of their Best Bets in Science Fiction for December 2012. Yes, it’s that good!
Ars Technica calls Ramez Naam’s NEXUS “Nexus “a lightning bolt of a novel, with a focus on action and plotting that will remind readers of some of the best novels from the late Michael Crichton.”
The Wall Street Journal reviews Ramez Naam’s NEXUS and calls it “Provocative… a double-edged vision of the post-human.”
